The National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, the National
Cancer Institute, the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, the National
Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, the National Institute on Drug
Abuse, the Office of Behavioral and Social Sciences Research, and the Office
of Dietary Supplements invite research grant applications that will enhance
our understanding of the factors and mechanisms that determine changes in
health risk behaviors during childhood and adolescence. The concept of health
risk behavior change is used in this program announcement to encompass the
evolution of specific health impairing behaviors. Of particular interest are
factors and processes that influence the initiation, continuation, and/or
cessation of one or more of the following health risk behaviors: (1)
substance abuse, (2) inadequate exercise and poor dietary practices as they
relate to being overweight or obese, and (3) intentional and unintentional
injuries. The terms "health risk behaviors" and "risky behaviors" are used
interchangeably in this PA.

The goal of this PA is to promote optimal physical and mental health in
children and adolescents. This may be accomplished by research to enhance our
understanding of the origin, evolution, and termination of health risk
behaviors and, ultimately, by the development of effective prevention and
intervention strategies designed to maintain healthy behaviors and prevent
health risk behaviors. Interdisciplinary research is sought to explore the
biological, genetic, physiological, psychological, and social/environmental
factors and mechanisms that influence health risk behavior change in children
and adolescents. A better understanding of theory-driven, causal pathways and
recognition of mediators and moderators will aid in the identification of the
etiology of health risk behaviors, precursors of health risk behaviors, and
associated risk and resilience factors. The research findings will have the
potential to inform the development of more comprehensive and effective
prevention and intervention strategies in the fields of substance abuse,
obesity, and injuries.
