Infant Growth and Development Study at UNCG

We are excited to announce that we received an additional grant from the National Institute of Health to follow participating children. We will be in touch to invite you to continue your participation when your child is about 3.5 and 5 years old.


The iGrow Up Study @ UNC Greensboro needs your help to learn more about healthy child growth and development!

The Infant Growth and Development Study (iGROW Up), led by Dr. Esther Leerkes and colleagues, is recruiting new participants! Children who are 2 years old and their mothers may be eligible to participate.  The goal of this research study is to determine the early life predictors of healthy weight, growth, and development during childhood. Mothers and children will participate for about 3 years beginning when children are 2 years old.  Participants receive a total of $450 and small gifts for them and their children over the course of the study to thank them for their time.  Please help us get the word out about our study by sharing this message with them.
