College Student Studies

Kate Flory in collaboration with Kathryn Van Eck and Kerrie Glass Murphy

The goal of these two large studies was to examine the association of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) symptoms among college students with a variety of health-risk behaviors, including cigarette smoking, alcohol and illicit drug use, and risky sexual behavior, with a particular focus on explanatory mechanisms. Data collection has been completed. Results will help the field to better understand outcomes associated with ADHD among college students and to develop effective prevention and treatment programs.
