IMPORTANT NOTICE TO STUDY PARTICIPANTS
The CHILD Cohort Study is fully committed to protecting the health, safety, and well-being of our CHILD family participants, researchers and study staff. Due to the COVID-19 virus and the important measures being taken to reduce the community spread, CHILD is temporarily suspending clinic visits with study participants until further notice.
If you have an appointment scheduled during this time, your CHILD coordinator will be in touch to re-book your appointment. For questions related to your study participation, please contact your local CHILD coordinator or email the CHILD Cohort Study National Coordinating Centre at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you to all the members of our CHILD family for your patience, commitment and trust in the days and weeks ahead.
