21. Mediation Analysis: Learning What Works in STI/Pregnancy Prevention Programs

By ETR | November 4, 2014

In ETR's latest video, Senior Research Associate Jill Glassman, PhD, makes a complex and powerful statistical process understandable. Mediation analysis allows evaluators to determine which specific factors in an evidence-based intervention had the greatest impact on participants. Dr. Glassman also explains how important this work can be in helping us determine what approaches to STI/pregnancy prevention work best.

22. My Take: My (Reluctant) Media Life

By Suzanne Schrag | October 24, 2014

I sometimes joke that I am a Luddite. The phone I use still flips open. I do not have a data plan. I inherited my husband’s old phone when he went over to the dark side, and was quite excited to finally have a QWERTY keyboard option. Friending me on Facebook offers little beyond practice in dealing with abandonment and not taking it personally. And my tendency to forget to charge my phone or to turn it back on after silencing it at a play or movie is a constant source of frustration to my nonvirtual friends.

At the same time, I am fascinated and even thrilled by the avenues for creativity, discovery and learning the Internet provides. For example, through random videos on the web, I have been able to hear amazing singers and musicians, been touched by social projects working to make a difference, gotten a sense of what it’s like to sail through the Alps wearing a wingsuit, witnessed feats of physical daring and emotional caring, learned how to make a killer plum jam, and developed a healthy respect for the honey badger.

23. Thoughts from HTN in Austin

By Suzanne Schrag | October 22, 2014

Suzanne Schrag, editor and product manager, shares some thoughts from the Healthy Teen Network Conference in Austin, Texas.

I’ve been enjoying my time here at the Healthy Teen Network Conference in Austin. Highlights of Tuesday’s events included a brief awards ceremony that provided me with inspiration and thoughts for the day. P3, the Georgia Public Private Partnership to Prevent Teen Pregnancy received the Outstanding Emerging Innovation Award, which motivated me to attend their session on Leading Collective Impact that afternoon.

26. We've Moved!

By ETR | October 1, 2014

After 25 years, ETR’s headquarters in Scotts Valley, California, has moved to a new location—the Enterprise Technology Center. We’re just up the road from our previous spot. We’ve spent the past month packing up books, files and equipment, and we’ve done an impressive job of purging the things that were ready to move on to the land of recycled stuff.

Any move this big can be stressful. But as you can see from our photo, we’re also excited to be in a location that offers us greater opportunities for synergy between departments. We’re all on the same floor, and it’s easy to find each other. Our Operations and IT staff did a magnificent job of making the move efficient and smooth.

So hello from our new place in the universe! We’re at 100 Enterprise Way, Suite G300, Scotts Valley CA 95066. Phone numbers and email all remain the same. We look forward to being in touch.
