Children of the 90s health study seeking new recruits
In the early 90s, midwives across Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire (BNSSG) invited all pregnant women due to give birth to join a new longitudinal health study called Children of the 90s.
The Children of the 90s has become a world a world-leading scientific resource with a vast collection of data and samples - which includes 10,000 placentas, 112,000 milk teeth and 11,500 toenails.
With over 20,000 active participants, Children of the 90s is now recruiting its third generation – the children of those original babies. Our health visitors across BNSSG have been asked to help find these new babies – called COCO90s (Children of the Children of the 90s).
Anyone born between April 1991-December 1992 in Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire could be eligible to join the study.
To find out more, ask one of our health visitors for a leaflet, or send a text to 07772 909090 (with your full name and date of birth) or an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If eligible, participants will be invited to join in the study’s largest ever clinic in Bristol. Travel expenses are paid, and each participant will get a £40 shopping voucher as a thank you.
