The SchooBe Study
also known as
The (DIAD) Study:
Detroit Intergenerational Adversity & Development study
The DIAD Study (formerly SchooBe Study) investigates how childhood experiences influence health and development. The study began in 1988, when pregnant women who obtained prenatal care at Hutzel Hospital agreed to participate in a pregnancy study. Their children then went on to participate in the SchooBE study over several years. They completed study visits at Wayne State University around ages 7, 14, and 19 years old.
Participants in this study have made important contributions to science. By continuing to participate in the new SchooBE study, participants can help us identify new ways to improve medical care and public policy. If you are a participant in the SchooBE study, our study staff are happy to discuss any questions about continued participation in the study.
