New CVFS Data on the Transition to Adulthood: Web Panel on Sensitive Topics and Hair-based Cortisol to Measure Stress

February 23, 2022
Time: 2:00 – 3:00 p.m. (EDT)

Presenters: William Axinn, Dirgha Ghimire, Heather Gatny, Sabrina Hermosilla


During the 2021-2022 year CVFS is launching two innovative approaches to measurement of key experiences in the transition to adulthood. First, with support from an NICHD R01 to study the consequences of parental mental disorders on their children’s transitions to adulthood, CVFS is launching a new web-based panel survey of potentially sensitive topics, including sex, contraception, sexual assault, alcohol use, and substance use. Second, with support from an NICHD R21 CVFS will launch a large-scale collection and analysis of young adult respondent’s hair samples to measure biological indicators of chronic psychological stress.

The webinar will be hosted using Zoom. Registration is required to attend the webinar. Support provided by NICHD (R25 HD101358).
