Buckeye Teen Health Study: Seeking Teenage Males, Ages 11-16 and their Families


The purpose of this study is to better understand the health of teenage males and their families across Ohio and to understand why people start using tobacco and how tobacco use changes overtime. Researchers also hope to learn about other choices such as diet, alcohol drinking, and other health behaviors. The results of this study will help the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) develop product standards for different types of tobacco and may also help develop better tests to identify tobacco-related health risks.

Eligibility criteria:

- Home must have a male child ages 11-16
- The male's parent or legal guardian must live in the same home to provide permission to participate
- Participant must live in Franklin, Brown, Guernsey, Lawrence, Muskingum, Scioto, or Washington County
