Community Youth Study

The Community Youth Study was originally funded by the National Institutes of Health for only 5 years of research.  It is a very proud achievement that the study has continued for more than 20 years.  We would like to thank all of YOU, our study participants, without whom none of this would have been possible. 

Over the last two decades, you have shared your experiences, your feelings, and your opinions with us and, in return, we would like to share more about this study with you.  This website was designed to introduce you to our staff members, explain our research goals, and provide some highlights from our data collection thus far.  We’re pretty excited about it and hope that you are too.
