Study Visit Information

Thank you for your interest in the TEAM study! The study involves one in-person visit at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center that takes up to 8 hours.

The study visit involves:

  • Questionnaires about personal health, diet & family history
  • Height, weight, waist & blood pressure measurements
  • Fasting blood draws
  • Urine samples
  • Critical thinking tests
  • A body composition scan
  • Heart functioning tests to look at how blood flows through the body and the flexibility of the arteries

Additionally, after the study visit we would like to complete two “diet recall” phone calls about what you ate the day before and an online questionnaire about what types of foods eaten a month after the visit. 

To thank you for your time, you will receive:

  • $300 for completing the in-person visit
