Youth-led Tobacco Prevention for Southeast Asian Americans



Our case study presentation centers on a group activity that engages participants in considering the challenges that data collection in CBPR projects pose for institutional review boards, in particular the challenges of youth participatory research.  Participants will serve as a mock IRB committee to review our actual IRB submission materials for our YPAR project, followed by group discussion. After this exercise, participants should better understand the IRB review process; foresee potential challenges that may arise in presenting CBPR projects to IRBs; and have an increased awareness of issues regarding “human subjects” in CBPR projects

Juliet P. Lee, Senior Research Scientist, Prevention Research Center (www.prev.org) of the Pacific Institute for Research and Evaluation (www.pire.org). Trained in Anthropology, I have been conducting community-based research in environmental approaches to substance use and misuse at PIRE since 1999, including community-partnered research projects with CBOs serving Asian Americans, American Indian/Native Americans and U.S. Latinos. With Sean Kirkpatrick I was co-Principal Investigator on a pilot youth participatory action research project funded by TRDRP, and  we are currently working on a three-year full intervention study based on that pilot. Most of my publications are available for free via PubMed (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed?term=Lee%2C%20Juliet%20P).
