Dr. Esther Leerkes and other UNCG faculty who are experts in child development, nutrition, and growth hormones have come together to create iGrow, or the Infant Growth and Development Study. The goal of this research study is to determine the earliest predictors of healthy weight, growth, and development in children. We hope to use the knowledge we learn to benefit families in the future. The iGrow team is a diverse group of faculty, staff, graduate and undergraduate students from multiple departments across campus. We are very excited and enthusiastic about this research study and we are looking forward to meeting you and your little one!
