For focus groups of Mexican American and African-American girls and focus groups of their parents to explore factors that could enhance the conduct of a future study of puberty and body mass.
Specifically these focus groups will address:
- Whether clinical assessment of pubertal staging is acceptable.
- How to enhance cooperation by parents and their daughters of different socioeconomic groups, among families with different levels of acculturation, and girls of different body mass indices.
- Explore whether established questionnaire items about puberty, that have been used in traditional surveys, require culture-specific changes to improve exposure assessment.
- Explore the acceptability of self-reported pictograms for body image and for developmental assessment by girls.
