  • Increasing HPV vaccine coverage among young adult gay and bisexual men

    New

    PI: Annie-Laurie McRee, DrPH , Paul L. Reiter, PhD, MPH

    The goal of the study is to collect pilot data on whether a mobile/web-based intervention can increase HPV vaccine coverage among young adult gay and bisexual men. (02/01/2016 - 06/01/2017)

  • Measurement and Methodology for Daily Patterns of Drug Use and Related Behaviors

    New

    PI: Yuh-Pey Anne Buu, PhD, PhD

    Thanks to new technology, prospective data collection using the interactive voice response (IVR) system and text-messaging (TM) has become possible in recent years. These new measurements have the advantages of cutting costs of staff time as well as minimizing recall bias and tendency to underreport socially undesirable behaviors. The long-term goal of this project is to abstract crucial information from daily process data of health risk behaviors to inform prevention and intervention. The overall objective of this application, which is the next step toward attainment of our long-term goal, is to develop cost-effective measurement and cutting-edge methodology to collect and analyze daily process data.

  • Get Connected: STD prevention among young men who use the e-technologies (phones, websites) to meet partners

    PI: Jose Bauermeister, PhD, MPH

    This study builds on the Project Connect Health Systems Intervention, adapting and piloting an online intervention (CONNECT-YM) that increases YMSM's HIV/STI awareness, and helps them identify culturally-competent sexual health providers where they may test for HIV/STIs.

  • HPV Vaccination and You

    PI: Sara H. Konrath, PhD

    The overarching research question is to investigate whether message tailoring affects the uptake of the HPV vaccine in a young adult population. In the current pilot study investigators hope to effectively design internet-based HPV vaccine materials that are adaptable for specific tailoring in future research based on our results.

  • MENU GenY

    PI: Gwen L. Alexander, PhD, MPH

    In support of NIH goals to improve people's health and support a healthy lifestyle, we conduct a randomized trial to evaluate an age-targeted web-based intervention designed to improve the diet of young adults born in or after 1980, known as "Generation Y" (GenY), using relevant features that appeal to this group. The primary outcome is increased fruit and vegetable consumption, increased whole grain consumption, and decreased sweetened beverage consumption. (12/01/2011 - 11/30/2016)

  • Project Quit - Texas

    PI: Alexandra Loukas, PhD

    The purpose of this study is to examine the feasibility of a tailored web-based cessation program, an adaptation of Project Quit, for a racially and ethnically diverse sample of young adult smokers from lower SES backgrounds. (04/01/2011 - 03/31/2013)

  • Me First

    PI: Vanessa K Dalton, MD, MPH , Ruth C. Carlos, MD

    MeFirst aims to develop and refine a tailored risk communication intervention to improve HPV vaccination uptake in young adult women ages 18-26 when administered during a teachable moment. The teachable moment is a spontaneously occurring health event that serves as a natural educational gateway. The potential effects of this intervention on HPV vaccine utilization in a hard-to-reach age group enhances system-based interventions that can be more broadly applied or generalized to other health interventions targeted to young adults or other health settings.

  • iSTART

    PI: Emily MacDonald Fredericks, PhD

    Nonadherence to immunosuppressant medications is common among adolescent liver transplant recipients, and is a leading cause of chronic rejection and graft loss, particularly following the transfer from pediatric to adult-centered transplant care. There is a critical need to promote medication adherence in this high risk group. The objective of this project is to design and evaluate a tailored intervention delivered using web-based and cellphone text messages to promote medication adherence in adolescent liver transplant recipients who are transitioning from pediatric to adult-centered transplant care. The iSTART (Individualized Self-management Training for Adolescent/Young Adult Recipients of Transplantation) intervention is delivered using technology to reduce the time and access constraints often encountered with traditional adherence interventions.
