CUNY Study

The CUNY School of Public Health & Health Policy is looking for young adults with intellectual or developmental disabilities to work with a Health Educator to understand the concerns of adolescents and young adults about socialization and sexuality.

The study is funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and endorsed by The New York State Office for People With Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD). Anyone who enrolls in the study will do six weeks of health education over Zoom for one hour a week. They would complete four surveys throughout and be paid up to $25 an hour.


  • Lives in New York State
  • Has an intellectual or developmental disability (for example Down syndrome, autism, mild or moderate intellectual disability)
  • Can attend meetings in person or via Zoom
  • Evidence of ability to follow directions and work well with others
