What Will Happen if My Child and I Take Part in this Research Study?

If participating in the BLOOM Premature Child Study (PCS), your and your child’s involvement will take about 3.5 years. We will ask you and your child to provide biological samples for the first 60 days after birth, and again at 3 months Corrected Age. At 1 and 3 years Corrected Age, we will ask you and your child to attend a clinic visit for allergy testing and sample collection (2 visits total). Through 4 online questionnaires, we will collect information about you and your child.
