The Pathways study has been fortunate to have a consistent group of individuals who have been partners in the implementation of this study.

Investigators at the University of Pittsburgh coordinate the study and have primarily responsibility for all aspects of the study implementation.

Data are collected under contract with investigators at Arizona State University (Phoenix) and Temple University (Philadelphia).

In addition, other individual have been part of the working group, making operational and conceptual decisions about the course of the study.

Finally, this study could not have been done without the efforts of the individuals who have been in the field collecting data each day or those who support them. We also could not have survived without the careful work of the staff in the coordinating center. These individuals are listed below. We are grateful to each one of them.
