New Product: Know the Risks/Sexual Health Over 50. This product is a computer-based sexual health and HIV/AIDS prevention education application targeting adults aged 50 and older. The application has a risk screening survey designed to assess the user's HIV risk level, and a learning center which provides multimedia learning activities designed specifically for older adults using NIA guidelines for computer-bases applications for this age group. New Research: In developing this product, Sociometrics staff, with the help of experts in the field, created the HIV risk-screener. This is the first HIV risk-screener designed specifically for adults over age 50 and in our research was shown to be better at assessing risk in this age group than HIV risk screening surveys designed for general populations. 5/1/2011

Grant Completed: Dr. Shayna Cunningham just completed a Phase I project funded by the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development. The overall objective of the project was to identify and provide after-school program professionals and others who work with children with easy access to after-school programs shown to be efficacious in improving young people's cognitive, social-emotional, behavioral, and physical health outcomes. The initial usability research results with professionals have been very encouraging. 5/1/2011
