Are you or is someone you know:

The National Children’s Study is a federally funded research study that will examine how the way we live, work and play can improve the health of children. We are currently recruiting 1,000 women who live in Davidson County, and will follow their children from birth to age 21.

To learn more about the study, call us toll free at (866) 346-2684 or send an e-mail to ncs-davidsonpartners@vanderbilt.edu with your name, phone number and times that you can be reached. We will not share your email address with anyone outside of the study.

Visit our website at DavidsonCounty.NationalChildrensStudy.gov for more info.

Participants will not need to change what they do and there will be no changes to routine prenatal visits or care. At this time you will answer questions by phone, online, mail or in person during home visits.

You will receive between $25 and $100 in cash or gift cards to thank you each time you complete a study visit or questionnaire.

We need your help. Please share this message with friends or family.
