2014 Add Health Users Conference

Welcome! We invite you to join us for the eleventh Add Health Users Conference to be held on June 26-27, 2014 on the campus of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in Bethesda, Maryland.

The principal goal of the conference is to give researchers who are working with data from the National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent Health (Add Health) an opportunity to share research goals, experiences, and results.  It will also provide an opportunity for those interested in working with the data to learn how they are currently being used by others.

Conference Agenda

The conference program will feature approximately 55 presentations by investigators who are conducting research on the health and well-being of adolescents and young adults using Add Health data.  In addition, several methodology sessions will be offered providing in-depth information on the Add Health study design and the unique biomarker, genetic, weight, and relationship data available from the study.

The preliminary conference agenda will go live online in April 2014.


On-line conference registration will open on May 5, 2014 and close May 30, 2014.  There is no charge to register or to attend the conference.  However, all conference participants, including presenters and moderators, are required to register before attending any sessions.

Airport Information

There are three airports that serve the Washington, D.C. area: Reagan National (DCA), Dulles (IAD), and Baltimore-Washington (BWI).  We recommend that you fly into DCA.  It is the closest airport to the Doubletree Hotel Bethesda and the NIH conference site.  You can ride the city’s subway system (called the “Metro”) directly from DCA to Bethesda.
