Social, behavioral, and biological linkages in young adult health

Stanford Bio-X Frontiers in interdisciplinary biosciences seminar 

Kathie Harries, University of North Carolina

The National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent to Adult Health (Add Health) integrated social and biological sciences in its 1995 design to survey and measure the health of over 20,000 U.S. adolescents and follow them into adulthood. Add Health has interdisciplinary, multilevel, longitudinal social, behavioral, psychological, environmental, biological, and genetic data on a nationally-representative young adult cohort now in their early 30s. With these data, Add Health is mapping the social, behavioral, and biological precursors of health risk in young adulthood, well before disease symptoms and consequences are evident. I will describe the interdisciplinary design of Add Health and what we have learned by merging social and biological data on the health of young adults in America.
