The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia Announces New Regional Participant in The National Children's Study
Date:10/3/2008

Burlington County, New Jersey is the newest study site

PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 3 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia today received a contract to manage a new study site in The National Children's Study. Children's Hospital will manage local participation, recruitment and data collection in Burlington County, New Jersey. The study is funded by the National Institutes of Health.

Investigators anticipate approximately 1,000 families in Burlington County will participate in the study that will follow children from before birth until age 21.

"The National Children's Study provides us with a great opportunity to contribute to improving the health of children and families in this county and across the nation for generations to come."
