National Cancer Institute releases data, hosts webinar on Family Life, Activity, Sun, Health, and Eating (FLASHE) study
January 14, 2016
The National Cancer Institute’s (NCI) Behavioral Research Program is preparing to release data from the Family Life, Activity, Sun, Health, and Eating (FLASHE) study and will host a Feb. 5 webinar to explore the study’s data and methods.
The FLASHE study, which sampled 2,500 dyads of caregivers and their adolescent children, collected survey data on psychosocial, generational (parent-adolescent), and environmental correlates of cancer-preventive behaviors. Findings from the study will improve understanding of lifestyle behaviors that relate to cancer risk. The majority of survey questions focus on diet and physical activity, with additional survey items about sleep, sun safety, and tobacco use.
NCCOR members contributed to the development of the NCI-supported study by strengthening the study’s scientific content, contributing to survey items, and enhancing its ability to address research gaps not currently captured in national data.
Join NCI on Friday, Feb. 5 at 2 p.m., Eastern for the Family Life, Activity, Sun, Health, and Eating (FLASHE) Study Webinar: An Introduction to Dyadic Data Analysis. The webinar will introduce attendees to the FLASHE data and the complexities of dyadic analysis. Speakers include:
- Niall Bolger, PhD, Professor, Columbia University
- Jean Philipe (J-P) Laurenceau, PhD, Professor, University of Delaware
