About FLASHE

The Family Life, Activity, Sun, Health, and Eating (FLASHE) study is a National Cancer Institute (NCI) survey that examines psychosocial, generational (parent-teen), and environmental correlates of cancer-preventive behaviors. FLASHE will examine lifestyle behaviors as they relate to cancer risk, mainly: diet and physical activity; as well as: sleep, sun-safety and tobacco use. 

FLASHE Facts

  • Data will be collected from dyads of caregivers and their adolescent children (ages 12-18).
  • Two surveys will be administered: one on diet-related behaviors and one on physical-activity related behaviors.
  • Data will be collected in 2014 and will be made available for public use.
