How will I or my child receive payment for participation?

Will my child miss school if I decide to enroll them in a study?

No, we would prefer that your child did not miss school for any research visits. Lab personnel are able to complete research visits every day of the week, including evenings and weekends. We do our best to work with each family’s busy schedule. Please let us know how we can best work with your family’s schedule.
