Recruitment on pause until further notice
Children between the ages of 8-12 and one parent/caregiver can participate in this study. Participation will help us understand the differences between children with and without overweight/obesity and help to improve future treatment of pediatric overweight/obesity. Children and parents who are eligible to participate will be scheduled for a one-time, three-hour appointment at Children’s of Alabama, where they will complete computer activities, body measurements, paper surveys, and blood labs. You will be paid $300 for your participation and any on-site parking fees will be waived.
