Past work suggests that striving and thriving in the context of systemic barriers comes at a physical cost in adulthood.
With this study, we have two goals:
1) understand which factors promote thriving in kids, and 2) what factors exist that may reduce that physical health cost over time.
We are interested in factors such as academic performance, mental health, family background, and physical health in the hopes of informing future programs and resources that will help kids and their families.
We are not currently recruiting new participants for Project STAR, but we look forward to sharing the results of our study with you as soon as they are available. If you are interested in participating in our future studies, please submit your information on the "Participate in Research" page.
