study enrollment procedure
Be sure you meet the five study criteria.
Read the consent and other documents and note any questions you might have.
Contact the Naviaux Lab study coordinator Rachel Riggs to answer any questions. Once all your questions are answered, sign the consent form. Please return the signed consent by scanning it, or by taking a picture, then attaching it in an email to Rachel at: email@example.com.
After we receive the signed consent, you will be sent a secure webpage link to complete the confidential online questionnaire.
That’s it. Once all the children are enrolled, the Naviaux Lab will collect and analyze the newborn screening results from the California state archives.
Although no personal results will be given, we will send all participants an update about the scientific results when they are complete at the end of the year.
