Digital Crowdsourcing to Boost Adolescent and Young Adult Health

Behavioral Science Collaborations

What it is

In collaboration with Dr. Tamara Taggart from George Washington University,  we’re examining the use of online crowdsourcing contests (like PrEP Your Step) and other forms of digital participatory action research to directly engage youth in the development of behavioral health interventions. This work will explore the effects of youth participation as a way to improve both community health campaigns and health outcomes for Black and Latinx young people.

Why it matters

This project will provide insights into the most impactful ways to support and engage young people in co-design at every stage of the technology—and intervention—development process, creating opportunities for meaningful contribution and improved health and well-being.
