Adolescent transition to high school is marked by both an increase in risky health behaviors as well as potential changes in family interaction. Using data collected from over 8000 8th and 9th grade students in Cuyahoga County in 2010-2011, we examine the association between parental involvement, personal assets and adolescent health behaviors.

With community respondents:

Scott Frank, MD, MPH
