Data Collection Instruments & Timeline

The CANDLE Study recruits pregnant women in their 2nd trimester and follows the mother-child dyad until the child is 5 years of age. Over this 5 year period, data is gathered at multiple times, in multiple settings: 2 pre-natal clinic visits, 1 hospital visit at delivery, 4 clinic visits, 2 home visits, and 12 phone visits. Below you will find a timeline outlining the measures gathered at each of the visits (excluding phone visits).
