Since 2009, the New Hampshire Birth Cohort Study has been

investigating how the influence of environmental contaminants

might affect the health of pregnant women and their children. With

the help of our valued study participants, we have made great

strides in identifying environmental risks that could impact the

health of you and your child in the future. We have had the

pleasure of enrolling and getting to know all of our study

participants over the years and we hope we can provide helpful

information to protect you and your child's long-term health and

wellbeing. This year we celebrate the 10th anniversary of our

study! Your participation in our study has contributed to

groundbreaking discoveries in children's environmental health

research. This year Gov. Chris Sununu of New Hampshire signed a

bill that limits the acceptable amounts of arsenic in the state's

public drinking water systems. This decision was greatly influenced

by our research which would not have been possible without

everyone in the New Hampshire Birth Cohort Study family!
