Healthy Community, Healthy Family

You could participate in the National Children's Study at the Los Angeles-Ventura Study Center (LAVSC). The goal of the Study is to improve the health and well-being of children. It will examine the effects of environmental influences on the health and development of children here in L.A. It is currently enrolling and following Study participants and recruiting women ages 18 to 49 who are pregnant or likely to become pregnant in an initial set of 14 randomly selected neighborhoods. Eligible participants will complete confidential surveys and will receive compensation for their time. The National Children’s Study is an observational study and does not involve any medications or treatments.  

Based at the UCLA Center for Healthier Children, Families & Communities and in close association with the University of California and Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, the LAVSC is a cooperative effort joining universities, community groups, local health departments, and hospitals. If you would like find out about eligibility to enroll or would like more information about this contact them at 877-834-7064.

We are all affected by the environment especially young children. My niece Jordan who is 5 years old often has colds, coughs and respiratory problems due to the air and other environmental influences. I wish they have this study in Singapore where she's living.

Another resource for health is the UCLA Wellness Initiative: You already have the healthy impulses, the desire to get the most out of life. By providing you practical tools, techniques and a healthy dose of motivation, the UCLA Wellness Initiative wants to be your catalyst — so you can take all those thoughts about enhancing the quality of your life…and do something with them! I am passionate about health and fitness. That's why I want to share this with everyone.
