Children's Hospital is part of the UPMC family.
The Healthy Allegheny Teen Survey, or HATS for short, is a research study being conducted jointly by the Allegheny County Health Department (ACHD), Pitt Public Health, UPMC Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh, and several local foundations. Over a 12-month period, approximately 1,600 youth, ages 14–19, are being asked to participate in this countywide telephone survey which asks about health and health behaviors. Phone calls will be made to both landline and cellular telephone numbers. Participants who complete the survey receive a $20 gift card in the mail. Phone numbers are randomly selected from all numbers in Allegheny County to ensure that everyone has a chance to participate in the HATS study.
If you have questions about the HATS study, or do not want to be contacted, please call 412-624-3126 or email at HATS@pitt.edu.
If you have been contacted to participate in the HATS study or doubt the legitimacy of the caller, a current list of our interviewers’ first names is below. All HATS interviewers should identify themselves by their first names when calling. Also know that our interviewers will never ask you for Social Security numbers or any financial information. We do ask for the participant’s name and address at the end of the survey so that we can mail the $20 gift card. This mailing information is not linked in any way to the information we collect in the survey.
