The Child Health & Development Studies (CHDS) project is a multi-generational cohort study that followed women whose mothers enrolled in the CHDS between 1959 and 1967. The purpose of this follow-up study is to look at causes of breast cancer and other diseases affecting women that may pass from one generation to the next or be caused by things in the environment. The third generation adult daughters were recruited for a mixed-mode health survey via mail and online. SRG conducts surveys with cohort participants using mixed modes, including online surveys, phone surveys, mail surveys, and in-person surveys. Both the adult and minor third generation daughters were invited to join their mother for an in-person visit where biospecimens of blood, urine and saliva were collected.
SRG was a great partner for our first experience with using iPads for data collection. They patiently explained the programming and data storage options and were always on-hand to troubleshoot. They completed all tasks on schedule and were a pleasure to work with. We are looking forward to partnering with SRG on future projects.
“Working with the Survey Research Group has allowed us to obtain high-quality data while securely exchanging complex data sets. Their ability to remain flexible has kept our study in motion despite frequent protocol changes. SRG is excellent to work with due to their quick correspondence, problem solving techniques, and excellent data management capabilities. We enjoy our current partnership with SRG and highly recommend their services.”
