UT Southwestern pediatricians launch landmark children's health study
Date:4/12/2011

PARIS, Texas April 12, 2011 Recruitment for the largest long-term study of children's health ever undertaken in the U.S. is now under way in Lamar County, about 100 miles northeast of UT Southwestern Medical Center, along the Texas-Oklahoma border.

The multicenter study will eventually follow 100,000 children nationwide from birth until age 21 to determine how various factors, including environmental and genetic ones, affect a child's health, development and quality of life.

"Lamar County will help us piece together some of the factors that influence the health of infants and children and, ultimately, some of the factors that influence chronic illness, and how we might either mitigate or manage those illnesses."

Lamar County, one of the few rural counties currently involved in the National Children's Study, is the only active study site in North Texas, although Dallas County is considered a potential future location. Bexar County, with San Antonio the county seat, is the only other active study site in Texas.

Researchers selected 105 study locations across the U.S. using a random sampling method to ensure that children and families from diver
