CPC Fellow Halpern awarded NIH grant to study sexual activity patterns from adolescence to adulthood

Mar 5, 2010

Carolyn Tucker Halpern, CPC Fellow and UNC Associate Professor of Maternal and Child Health, will launch a project called Sexual Behavior Trajectories from Adolescence to Adulthood. To conduct the study, Halpern received a $1.6 million grant from the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development of the National Institutes of Health. The five-year project  was awarded in March 2010 and will be housed at the Carolina Population Center.

She will use data from Waves I through IV of the National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent Health (Add Health) to examine how types of sexual patterns such as timing of debut and premarital versus marital activity influence health and psychosocial adjustment as adolescents develop into adults.

Add Health is also a project of the Carolina Population Center.

Halpern's co-investigators on the project are CPC Fellows Amy Herring and Chirayath Suchindran.
