The UNC Nutrition Research Institute seeks to determine the effect of pregnancy complications in African American mothers on the disease risk of their children. Examples of pregnancy complications include high blood sugar, high blood pressure and preeclampsia.


  • African American mothers
  • Must be 18 years or older
  • With two or more children between ages 5-10
  • Mothers may or may not have had pregnancy complications

Volunteers will stay 1 to 2 hours to fill out questionnaires and provide blood, saliva and urine samples.

Eligible participants will receive $50 once the study has been completed.
