Cal Poly FLASH Study Seeks Collaborators

Feb 26, 2014


Cal Poly faculty members and external researchers are invited to be FLASH investigators. To request data, please refer to the FLASH Data Dictionary to identify variables of interest and use the FLASH Data Request Form to make an inquiry.

Following the Longitudinal Aspects of Student Health (FLASH) is the nation's largest longitudinal college health study!

Cal Poly's own longitudinal college health study, FLASH, tracks the health behavior and outcomes of students throughout their college careers. This information may be used to examine and intervene in modifiable health behaviors associated with weight gain, high blood pressure and other risk factors among college students.

Cal Poly FLASH data is now available for analysis. Students and faculty members recruited incoming freshmen in fall 2009 and 2010 and collected data until spring 2012. The survey results include socio-demographic, dietary, physical activity, stress, media use and other data. Physical assessments, glucose and cholesterol panels, vitamin D measurements and resting energy expenditure assessments were also conducted among different sub-samples.

The FLASH research group is now meeting on a regular basis, uniting the scientific interests of Cal Poly faculty from across campus. Our goal is to collaboratively publish manuscripts using FLASH data in all areas of faculty interest. The FLASH study has already generated more than a dozen national and international conference presentations and we are planning to develop multiple manuscripts in several thematic areas.
