Children's Hospital is Conducting an Asthma Research Study in Children

UPMC Asthma Study

The Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC is conducting a 12-month research study for children ages 6-14 to evaluate the relationship between asthma and Vitamin D.

Through the study, researchers will examine whether increased Vitamin D levels reduce the frequency of asthma attacks in children who have been diagnosed with asthma by a doctor. 

Participating children will have to complete a questionaire and medical tests as well as phone calls and required study visits to both the home and the hospital. Compensation will be provided for participants. 

Interested participants please call 877-296-9026.
