What happens when you call?

If you call about one of our projects, we will first describe the study to you. If you are interested in participating, we will ask you some questions to see if you may qualify to be in the study. If it seems like you may qualify, we will then make an appointment with you to come to our lab, where we will do a more in-depth screening to see if you qualify.
