What to Expect

How Participants Take Part

If you’re an Allegheny County parent, you and your child will ideally follow a path that begins when your child enrolls and ends when she or he turns 18. The Pittsburgh Study places great emphasis on inclusion, open communication and making sure every child and family member is treated with respect by our trained staff.

Incentives to participate

All long-term study participants will be paid via Vincent payment cards for completing each long survey. The Pittsburgh Study will also cover bus fare, ride-share fare (if you request it) and parking fees to attend study visits. When available, The Pittsburgh Study will offer childcare services while caregivers complete study forms. Further incentives may be available as the study evolves.
