Date:1/18/2008

Texas Children's Hospital, 11 hospitals will participate in the study: Arkansas Childrens Hospital, Little Rock; Boston Childrens Hospital; Childrens Hospital of Wisconsin in Milwaukee; Riley Childrens Hospital, Indianapolis; Mott Children Hospital, Ann Arbor; Lucille Packard Childrens at Stanford; St. Louis Childrens Hospital; Seattle Childrens Hospital; and Childrens Hospital at the University of Alabama at Birmingham.
