MAPme was launched by the BGA Lab in Fall 2018 at Emory University. It is a research and educational initiative where students and professors work together to understand how genes, cognitive abilities and personality relate to lifestyle behaviors and mental well-being in college students, with a specific interest in substance use. Our main objective is to educate the study population on our findings, engage students in discussion around common health issue occurrences, and empower students to achieve better health. MAPme’s prospective goal is to develop an overall platform for universities to better understand their population with the purpose of creating appropriate health interventions using university resources, study results, classes and events. As of Fall 2021, we have expanded our initiative to include participants from Kennesaw State University (see flyers below) and visit the MAPme Project Website for more information.
