Seeking 18-19 year old Hawaiian Youth for UH Manoa Study

What is the Research Study About?

Over the next few months, our research team will be talking with Native Hawaiian youth about teen pregnancy in their communities. We are also interested in hearing about how things go after keiki are born to teen moms and dads. Through telling your story, you can help us learn how to improve support for Hawaiian youth. The findings from this study are likely to affect services for teens who may want some help planning the timing of their families. Study findings are also likely to help improve services for Hawaiian youth who are parents and need a helping hand. You'll get a $25 gift card to CVS/Longs as a "thank you" gift for volunteering your time to the research study. Your identity will be kept confidential - your name will never be shared with your story. (UH Study ID: 23284)
