The Pittsburgh Study

Our vision: All children should graduate from high school on time, healthy, and thriving.

Please join us at a planning retreat on June 28th to kick off The Pittsburgh Study, an exciting multi-year longitudinal population study that will examine the biological and environmental factors affecting health. This groundbreaking investigation will identify the most pressing factors influencing the health of our region’s kids and will follow children born in Allegheny County through adulthood – tracking participants’ medical, educational, environmental, and demographic information.

We welcome your participation and expertise as we lay the roadmap that will lead to a healthier future for children!
