Infant Brain Imaging Study Recruiting Participants


Happy New Year! I hope your year is off to a great start at The Down Syndrome Association of Northern Viginia!

I’m reaching out on behalf of the Infant Brain Imaging Study at UNC. We’d like you to know that we are still recruiting infants with Down syndrome to be in our study.
Our study is aimed at understanding the effects of Down Syndrome as witnessed in brain growth and development.
Therefore, we are currently seeking infants with Down Syndrome under the age of 12 months to participate in the research study.
If you know of anyone who may be interested in participating, please share my contact information with them — we’d love to enroll as many people as possible! This study is a great way for parents to understand their children’s development while contributing to Down syndrome research that will help other families as well.

The study is funded by the National Institutes of Health, so travel expenses are fully covered for all families in addition to the study compensation itself ($300 at each visit).

We are currently increasing our recruitment efforts and our team would greatly appreciate your assistance and support. Here are a few ways you could help us spread the word about this opportunity for families:
• post our flyer on your social media pages
• share our flyer with any listservs your organization uses
• share this email with other organizations/clinicians who work with the Down syndrome community
• forward this email directly to families who may be interested
• print a few physical flyers for your local clinics and offices

You can find additional information at
Please don’t hesitate to reach out if I can answer any questions or speak with you more in depth about our research. My direct email is

I am really looking forward to continued communication with your team so we can uplift and support the families you serve!
