Utilizing the Youth Behavior Surveillance System Dataset to observe LGBT gender, ethnic, and grade level determinants for an increased incidence of substance use

Wednesday, May 15th 12:00 - 1:00 PM

→ In this quantitative, observational study, we compare 2017 data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC’s) Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS), to observe how youth who identify as Gay, Lesbian, Gay, or Bisexual use heroin, injected drugs, and prescriptions in comparison to youth that identify as straight across 3 geographies: New York State, California and Washington DC. By making observations across three geographic areas, we can explore gender, ethnic, and grade level determinants of increased incidence of substance abuse activities. This study aims to foster dialog between educational practitioners and public health researchers to better collaborate for development of a school-based drug prevention framework
