Our goal is to understand the impact of state-level policies and communication campaigns on substance use beliefs and behaviors in young Vermonters.


PACE Vermont is a research study that will enroll approximately 2,000 youth aged 12-17 and 1,000 young adults aged 18-25 in early 2019. Eligible participants will complete three brief (10-15 minute) online surveys over a six-month period. The surveys will occur approximately every 3 months and ask about tobacco, alcohol, and substance use beliefs and behaviors; awareness of and support for substance-related policies; and exposure to statewide tobacco and substance use prevention efforts.
