Largest ever study of U.S. children begins next year

Filed under:

The Nurses' Health Study and the Nurses' Health Study II were huge, long-term studies that had a significant impact on the health care of women. Now, the largest study of U.S. children is gearing up for a 2008 launch. Focusing on the impact of the environment on the health of children, The National Children's Study will include 40 health centers across the United States and will eventually follow 100,000 children from birth to age 21, though researchers say that initial findings may come to light within the first two to three years.

You can learn more about the study at its website, where you can also sign up to receive email updates about the study's progress.
