National Children’s Study Environmental Summit – 4
Narrator: This is NIH Health Matters. I’m Joe Balintfy. The large, long-term National Children’s Study will examine the effects of the environment and genetics on the growth, development, and health of children across the United States. Dr. Michael Dellarco, a senior scientist with the study says how scientists record and measure those effects is key.
Dellarco: There are technologies on the horizon many very close at hand which with a bit of additional investigation can be further developed and tested and introduced into a study of the scale and scope of the National Children's Study.
Narrator: For details on the National Children’s Study, or for information on how to participate, visit the website www.nationalchildrensstudy.gov. Health Matters is produced by the National Institutes of Health, part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
