Evaluation of Healthy Child Care Environments

UNC Department of Maternal and Child Health (MCH) investigators led a research study to determine if the use of a new type of equipment in child care centers affected the rate of diarrheal illness among infants and toddlers attending those centers. The SRU consulted with MCH researchers on overall study design and questionnaire development and had primary responsibility for telephone data collection. From December 2002 to June 2003, the SRU conducted bi-weekly 5-minute CATI interviews to capture diarrheal illness data from as many as 400 parents who were recruited through North Carolina child care centers participating in the study.
