IPEN Adolescent: International Study of Built Environments and Physical Activity

Project: Research project

Project Details


Dr. Adams developed the Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Templates and Quality Control process for the IPEN Adult study. This process allows for comparable built environment variables to be created using common definitions and procedures across international settings. As a Co- Investigator of IPEN Adolescent study, he will oversee GIS data collection and quality control process across 9 countries. He will coordinate this process using existing templates and tools and by frequently communicating and problem solving with GIS teams in each participating country. He will provide continuity to the GIS data collection and maximize lessons learned from the previous Adult study. He will also participate in the methods and procedures for other measures particularly as they support fidelity among the newer sites participating in this multi-country study. Dr. Adams will contribute to study teleconference meetings, reports to the principal investigator, GIS database development, GIS comparability evaluations, statistical analyses, interpretation of results, manuscript writing, and dissemination activities.
