Space-time analysis of adolescent health-risk behaviors - Sarah E. Wiehe, M.D., M.P.H.

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Physician Faculty Scholars Program was designed to strengthen the leadership and academic productivity of junior medical school faculty who are dedicated to improving health and health care.This grant supports a study to examine the dynamic context, or the changing physical and social environments, as it relates to health-risk behaviors of adolescent young women by : (1) employing global position satellite (GPS)-enabled cell phones to continually track their movements for four one-week periods over the course of a year; and (2) using qualitative techniques to identify important contextual constructs to health-risk behaviors.
