NAIROBI, Kenya: Clea and Michael sit with colleagues at a school in Nairobi's Kibera slum while the data-collectors guide students through the survey.

Clea Sarnquist, DrPH, a senior research scholar in pediatrics at Stanford, and statistician Michael Baiocchi, PhD, traveled to Kenya in January to launch a closed-cohort study that will track changes in a fixed group of about 4,000 girls, with the goal of better understanding of how girls are adapting to the trainings and their social situations.

The Stanford Gender-Based Violence Prevention Collaborative, composed of several researchers in the medical school, is spearheading a study that will be the most rigorous and expansive investigation ever conducted into a behavior-based sexual assault prevention program.
