ENVIRONMENTAL INFLUENCES ON CHILD HEALTH OUTCOMES IN PUERTO RICO (ECHO-PRO)

ENVIRONMENTAL INFLUENCES ON CHILD HEALTH OUTCOMES IN PUERTO RICO (ECHO-PRO)

Initiatives -
 The proposed Environmental Influences on Child Health Outcomes in Puerto Rico (ECHO-PRO) will leverage and build upon an active birth cohort in Puerto Rico (“PROTECT”, P42ES017198) that has recently initiated infant/child follow-up (“CRECE”, P50ES026049). ECHO-PRO will provide data and biospecimens for 570 mother-child pairs already participating in the PROTECT/CRECE cohort, as well as recruit an additional 1100 pregnant women, yielding 990 more children, for a total of 1560 mother-child pairs (88% retention by completion of study) with data and biospecimens to be integrated into the ECHO Consortium
