  • 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.

  • SafER Teens

    PI: Maureen A. Walton, MPH, PhD , Rebecca M. Cunningham, MD

    The urban emergency department (ED) represents an underutilized venue for delivering violence interventions among adolescents. In the United States, there are over 100 million ED visits each year, of which at least 3 million are the result of violence. A recent study (the SafERteens Study) demonstrated the efficacy of an ED-based BI for violence on changing attitudes, self-efficacy, and reducing violent behaviors, peer victimization, and violence related consequences. From a public health standpoint, however, in order to reduce violence on a broader scale studies are needed to determine the effectiveness of the SafERteens behavioral intervention (BI) when delivered by clinical staff in real world ED settings. This study is designed to translate this efficacious BI for violence into a practical prevention program incorporated into ED clinical practice; with ED staff conducting the screening and BI. Specifically, we will determine the reach, effectiveness, adoption, implementation, and maintenance of the SafERteens BI in two diverse and novel ED settings: Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) and Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta (GMH).

  • 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)

  • GOAL: Girls Only! Activity for Life

    PI: Lorraine Robbins, PhD, RN, FNP-BC

    This school-based program encourages moderate to vigorous physical activity among middle school girls. During the 17 week intervention period, girls meet with the school nurse for 2 motivational interviewing-based sessions, attend a daily exercise 'club' after school, and receive a tailored program delivered on iPads.

  • 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.

  • MPOWERed 2

    PI: Susan J. Woolford, MD, MPH

    This project expands the existing MPOWER text message library to include tailored exercise messages, weekly photovoice activity, and feedback messages. New messages are tested with focus groups before use in the program. (05/01/2009 - 04/30/2014)

  • MPOWERed

    PI: Susan J. Woolford, MD, MPH

    Short, tailored text messages are sent to obese adolescents that address five evidence-based weight-related behavioral domains: reduction of screen time, regular consumption of a healthy breakfast, decreased consumption of sweetened beverages, decreased consumption of fast food, and increased consumption of fruit and vegetable. Texts include highly tailored messages, targeted messages and reminders.

  • CECCR - Center of Excellence in Cancer Communications Research

    PI: Victor J. Strecher, PhD, MPH

    The purpose of the University of Michigan Center of Excellence in Cancer Communications Research (CECCR) is to develop an efficient, theory-driven model for generating tailored health behavior interventions that is generalizable across health behaviors and socio-demographic populations.

  • HomeFront Strong: Building Resiliency in Military Families

    PI: Michelle R. Kees, PhD

    Military families have long been the pillars of strength, yet the tempo of deployment over the past 10 years has taken a toll. Nearly 40% of military spouses experience psychological symptoms related to deployment, yet few evidence-based programs are available to support spouses. This gap between high need and limited services is heightened in states that are primarily Reserve Component and lack a local military installation. The project aims to improve the psychological health of military families residing in civilian communities by developing supplemental mobile-accessible materials for HomeFront Strong (HFS), a promising evidence-based psychological health intervention for military spouses and children.

  • Mobile Positively Smoke Free: A mobile intervention to promote cessation in HIV-infected smokers

    PI: Jonathan Shuter, MD

    Cigarette smoking is a leading contributor to mortality among people living with HIV (PLWH) in the highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) era, and it is the direct cause of 30% of non-AIDS defining malignancies. It is driving the alarming rise in cardiac events and lung cancers in this highly vulnerable population. The lack of access to proven, effective, culturally appropriate tobacco cessation services represents a health disparity of the first order. The psychosocial profile of the PLWH-smoker community, characterized by high rates of psychiatric comorbidity, drug and alcohol use, and low levels of social support, suggests that achieving high cessation rates will be a great challenge. Positively Smoke Free is an intensive, multisession, cessation intervention specifically developed for PLWH smokers. It is currently available as a live, group therapy program and also as a web-based version designed for notebook or desktop computers. In its current form, the web-version is not adoptable to the smartphone platform. Pilot data from randomized, controlled, trials of both formats show promise. Mobile Positively Smoke Free will adapt the web-version to a mobile version.
