College Student Studies

Kate Flory, Ph.D., USC, with the help of graduate students Kathryn Van Eck and Kerrie Glass Murphy

The goal of these two large studies was to examine the association of 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 is completed and results will help the field to better understand the young adult outcomes associated with ADHD, and to develop effective prevention and treatment programs.
