    Brief Summary of what is expected from the student:
    We are looking for an African American male to create several audio recordings and 1 brief video recording of scripted content designed to teach teenagers about healthy and unhealthy behaviors. The recordings will be featured in a cell phone app that will be used by recently arrested youth on probation as part of a research study conducted out of the UIC Center for Dissemination and Implementation Science. This project is ideal for anyone who is interested in app development, establishing a recording portfolio, and/or psychology and behavioral health research. The estimated time commitment is approximately 15 hours over 3 weeks, with the option of continuing longer if interested.
