PATH

Project PATH is an NIH-funded research study conducted through the University of North Texas Health Science Center. Project PATH aims to learn more about how young people think and engage with others throughout the day, and how influences, situations and timing may affect their decisions. We also want to learn what may be different for a high school student, someone of college age, and a person who is slightly older, to see how factors and motivations may change over time or according to different stages of maturity

PRISM

Project PRISM is an NIH-funded research study comprised of two phases. Phase 1 is aimed at exploring parent communication about health and risk behaviors in adolescents and young adults, including social networking use through a series of focus groups. Phase 2 will use the insights gained from the first phase to inform the content for an interactive web-based and text messaging program for parents and their teens ages 15-20 that involves 1 and 6-month follow-ups. The results of the second phase will help evaluate whether the interactive web-based and text messaging program for parents reduces health risk behaviors and risky social media use. As required, we have registered Project PRISM with ClinicalTrials.gov (NCT04333966).
