All three events are free and open to the public. Read the complete story.

Risky Teen Behavior May Not Occur at Home Or School: But How To Track? -- How can researchers track where teens go when not in or near home or school to see if this movement has an impact on health-related behavior such as smoking or sexual activity?

In a paper published in the April issue of the Journal of Adolescent Health researchers from Indiana University School of Medicine report on a pilot study which evaluated the feasibility of using global position system-enabled cell phones to track where 14- to 16-year-old girls spent their time.

IU in the news

Economist: Recession Will be Mild
Inside Indiana Business, March 21 -- One Indiana economist says the U.S. economy is already in a recession.

Can you keep a medical secret? Move to online records pits your privacy against a doctor's need to know
Indianapolis Star, March 23 -- Does a doctor treating you for a broken leg need to know you had an abortion 20 years ago? Should your dentist have access to information about your visit to a psychiatrist? Such questions are moving center stage as patients' medical records increasingly are transferred from manila folders to the Internet, allowing easier access to medical history that the patient may not want known. In one of the latest examples of the debate over how much patient history doctors should have access to, Dr. Marc Overhage, chief executive of Indiana Health Information Exchange, cast the lone dissenting vote as a 17-member federal panel recommended that patients get more control over electronic health records. "I certainly believe it's a patient's right to protect and control their information," said Overhage, a professor at the Indiana University School of Medicine. Read the full story.

IU professors study importance of visual images in campaigns; Audiences judge presidential candidates on looks, not words
Indiana Daily Student, March 24 -- Presidential candidates are seen more and heard less, according to research conducted by two IU associate professors. The research reveals the importance of visual images for candidates running for president and the power that visuals have on the minds of viewers. "We analyzed the visual aspects of the last four elections," said Erik Bucy, an IU professor who is currently a visiting associate professor at the University of Michigan. "This is unique in the sense that most researchers don't focus exclusively on the images," "The question is, 'are the candidates shown more than they're heard?' and the answer is 'yes'."

Where is vision for next steps in Iraq?
Indianapolis Star, March 24 -- Five years after the Iraq war's commencement, where are we? Saddam Hussein no longer rules the country. The costs of the war in Iraq will be measured in the trillions of dollars. It has now endured longer than either world war and ranks only behind World War II in its price tag. Nearly 4,000 American soldiers have died in Iraq, and roughly 30,000 have been wounded, injured or left ill. The human and financial cost in veterans' benefits and long-term care will mount for decades. Probably more than 100,000 Iraqi deaths are linked to this war. Lee Hamilton is the director of the Center on Congress at Indiana University and the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars in Washington, D.C. He served as a U.S. representative from Indiana from 1965 to 1999. Read the full story.
