DASH Feasibility Study 2012-2013

posted on 19 June, 2012

What's the Feasibility Study about?

The DASH study continues to help us understand how best to promote good health in young people.  The aim of the Feasibility Study is to track the physical and mental health of the original DASH young people now they are in their early twenties. We are inviting a sample of people who previously took part in DASH to take part in the Feasibility Study.

DASH will be the first large scale UK cohort of ethnic minority groups with both social and biological measures from childhood to early adulthood. The study will provide opportunities for early detection of risk and for informing intervention strategies.

The DASH study aims to understand more about social factors which affect people’s health and well-being, and in particular the health and well-being of ethnic minority young people.  If you took part in DASH while you were at school, we hope you will continue to help us by taking part!
