We Need You!!!

Help us learn about common environmental exposures in children.

The Study: Researchers at the University of Colorado and Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment are conducting a study to learn about the possible exposure among children to some metals and chemicals in the Four Corner State region.

What are we measuring? There are many environmental sources of exposure to metals and chemicals, including drinking water. When you are exposed to chemicals, your body releases the chemical metabolites

How will we measure it? We will measure the amount of chemical metabolites in urine samples.

What will we do with this information? Your results along with the results of all the other participants in the study will help us understand the extent that children in rural Colorado may be exposed to these chemicals.

Who can participate? Parents and children who are 3- 13 years old

What information will we collect? We will collect one urine samples from your child at one doctor’s visit in one day. We will also ask parents to answer a 15 minute questionnaire about their family’s water, food, jobs, hobbies and other activities.

If you are interested in participating, please call Edith at 719-298-6295 or Karina at 720-483-6176
