The National Children’s Study is seeking pregnant women and families planning to have children to participate in a long-term study to look at how children’s health is affected by a number of factors.

Spearheaded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and Environmental Protection Agency, the study will include 100,000 children from before birth to age 21 in 105 locations across the nation.

Participation by Hawaiʻi families helps the study reflect diverse ethnic, socioeconomic and other background factors while looking at biological, environmental and psychosocial factors, notes Lynnae Sauvage, principal investigator for the UH Mānoa Study Center and chair of obstetrics, gynecology and women’s health in the John A. Burns School of Medicine.

If interested in participating in Hawaiʻi, email or call 808-692-1920.
