Best of luck, Christine! We miss you! Also, I'd love to learn more about your dissertation work -- Beth, Vichi and I are thinking about explicitly addressing the role of technology in our MyHealthEd intervention in the future. I'm a huge fan of Experiment.com -- we used it two summers ago and have several lessons learned, so reach out if you want to strategize. It looks like you're well on your way to reaching your goal though ;-). Best of luck! Cheers, Liz

Thanks for your note, Becky! Vichi and I will be sure to make this very clear as students sign off to participate in our pilot study and throughout their online experience. In addition, we are planning to put together a formal advisory board in the coming weeks with significant youth representation. We think it is very important for them to contribute feedback to our design process. Again, thank you for your continued support!
