COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY STUDY LOOKING FOR

INTERNATIONALLY ADOPTED CHILDREN

Posted January 23, 2018: 

Hello everyone, we have recently been contacted by a research group at Columbia University that is studying the ways that emotions are connected to gastrointestinal symptoms in internationally adopted youth. They are recruiting children who have been internationally adopted from institutions or foster care settings, and who are now between 2-4 years of age. This study is performed completely at the participant’s home, so children from anywhere in the United States can participate.
