Study Of Long Term Outcomes For Teens Who Have Participated In The Elgan Study Of Premature Infants


Seeking teens aged 15-18 years old who were enrolled in the ELGAN study of premature infants between April 2002 and August 2004 for a follow-up study of health and developmental progress.


Participants will come in at age 15 and again at age 18 for a 6-hour visit to answer questions and have a thorough medical exam with imaging and collection of specimens.

What we're hoping for

We hope to better understand how prenatal and early life exposures impact adolescent health for premature babies born before 28 weeks of gestation between April 2002 and August 2004 and who participated in the ELGAN study
