    From the air our children breathe to the food they eat, to where and how they live, the environments in which they grow affect their development and lifelong health. The National Children’s Study, undertaken by the National Institute of Child Health and Development (NICHD), is a large longitudinal investigation of these environmental influences, tracking participants from birth through early adulthood. Dr. Peter Scheidt, medical officer and co-director of the National Children’s Study at the NICHD, explains how the findings might impact patient care and offers an estimate of when we can expect to see the first significant results. If you have patients who may be interested in participating, how can you refer them for enrollment? Dr. Jennifer Shu hosts.
