About

Improving Prenatal Health Communication: Engaging Men via e-Health builds on pilot work conducted by members of this team, and it will involve:

  1. building a new e-health intervention specifically for men,
  2. evaluating the intervention qualitatively with a local U.S. sample and quantitatively with a nationally representative U.S. sample,
  3. evaluating the intervention in Portugal to enable cross-cultural comparisons of its utility. The entire team will be involved in the development and evaluation of the intervention, as well as efforts to disseminate findings.
