As many of you are aware, due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 virus national, state, and local agencies have implemented precautions to slow or stop the spread of the virus. These precautions have been extended to universities and schools. Many of you have enrolled in our studies over the past 12 years and may have  upcoming appointments with our team members. Your safety is very important to us, so, in consultation with the University we have postponed any home visits.


Please visit our website to get more information about participating in our research studies.
