The Study of Adult Development is a longitudinal study that has been following two groups of men over the last 75 years to identify the psychosocial predictors of healthy aging. We have two groups of participants: The Grant Study that is composed of 268 Harvard graduates from the classes of 1939-1944 and the Glueck Study group that is made up of 456 men who grew up in the inner-city neighborhoods of Boston.
We are now beginning to study the children of our original participants- the second generation of the Study of Adult Development. Our new project aims to study the effect of childhood experiences on midlife health. We aim to use our rich data set to create a detailed model of how early events help shape our well-being in midlife. This project is currently funded by the National Institute on Aging.
We will begin contacting the prospective participants for our study starting in the summer of 2015. We estimate that there are over 2,000 children of the Grant and Glueck cohorts living across the U.S. today.
Our Second Generation participants will provide irreplaceable information about aging across the lifespan.
