17
Early Challenges in the Field
  • With the best of media and community outreach,
    many households still have not heard about study
    beforehand
  • Once the door is opened, enumeration and
    pregnancy screening proceed quickly
  • Getting consent for a 21-year study takes
    patience and persistence
  • Appropriate concern results in extra effort by
    staff to alleviate concerns including reminder
    that each component of the study is optional

18
Upcoming Challenges
  • Length and coordination of home visits
  • Retention of participants in a highly mobile
    population
  • Maintaining community enthusiasm in a long-term
    study
  • Coordination of birth visits a special challenge
    given that there are 43 birth hospitals in NYC
    and Nassau County where Queens residents deliver
