HEALthy Brain and Child Development (HBCD) Study Recruiting Participants

The Wisconsin site of the HEALthy Brain and Child Development (HBCD) Study  at UW-Madison is recruiting people who are pregnant.

  • Surveys about daily experiences
  • Biological samples like saliva from you and your child
  • Interactive activities for you and your child
  • Pictures of your child’s brain
  • Wearable sensors to measure your child’s heartbeat and movement
  • Physical measurements of your child’s growth

Participants will be compensated for their time and travel. Please email for more information regarding enrollment in the study.
