Parent ethnic-racial socialization during childhood protects against increases in bedtime sleep problems in Black adolescents.

Anne Conway, Shannon Cain, Portia Granger, Hannah Lozano, Amelia R Gavin,

Racial disparities in sleep have been reported with Black adolescents showing the least amount of sleep relative to other youth. Yet, few within-group studies have examined factors that protect Black adolescents from sleep problems. To address this gap, we tested whether parent ethnic-racial socialization (i.e., instilling a sense of cultural ... Read more >>

Jonathan Yinhao Huang, Geneviève Gariépy, Amelia R Gavin, Ali Rowhani-Rahbar, David S Siscovick, Daniel A Enquobahrie,

BACKGROUND:Maternal education in a child's early life may directly affect the child's adult cardiometabolic health, but this is difficult to disentangle from biological, social, and behavioral life course processes that are associated with maternal education. These processes may also differ between males and females. METHODS:Using data from the National Longitudinal ... Read more >>

Accounting for Life-Course Exposures in Epigenetic Biomarker Association Studies: Early Life Socioeconomic Position, Candidate Gene DNA Methylation, and Adult Cardiometabolic Risk.

Jonathan Y Huang, Amelia R Gavin, Thomas S Richardson, Ali Rowhani-Rahbar, David S Siscovick, Hagit Hochner, Yechiel Friedlander, Daniel A Enquobahrie,

Recent studies suggest that epigenetic programming may mediate the relationship between early life environment, including parental socioeconomic position, and adult cardiometabolic health. However, interpreting associations between early environment and adult DNA methylation may be difficult because of time-dependent confounding by life-course exposures. Among 613 adult women (mean age = 32 ... Read more >>

Are Early-Life Socioeconomic Conditions Directly Related to Birth Outcomes? Grandmaternal Education, Grandchild Birth Weight, and Associated Bias Analyses.

Jonathan Y Huang, Amelia R Gavin, Thomas S Richardson, Ali Rowhani-Rahbar, David S Siscovick, Daniel A Enquobahrie,

Grandmaternal education may be related to grandchild birth weight (GBW) through maternal early-life development; however, conventional regression models may be endogenously confounded. Alternative models employing explicit structural assumptions may provide incrementally clearer evidence. We used data from the US National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent to Adult Health (1995-2009; 1,681 mother-child ... Read more >>
