  • Erin Ferguson
Erin Ferguson has received a travel award to present at the 2018 National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent to Adult Health (Add Health) Users Conference. Travel stipends of up to $900 were awarded to selected presenters. Her presentation is titled “The Association between Marijuana Use and C-reactive protein: A Longitudinal Analysis.” The Add Health Users Conference will take place from July 23-24, 2018 at the NIH’s Natcher Conference Center in Bethesda, MD. It will feature researchers who are working with Add Health data and also provide opportunities to share research goals, experiences, and results. 
Funded by the NIH, Add Health combines survey, contextual, and biological data to understand the social, behavioral, and biological linkages in health trajectories as the Add Health cohort ages through adulthood, and the fifth wave of data collection continues this biological data expansion.
