Residential Environment, Allostatic Load and Diseases - RENALDI study

The purpose of this research study is to learn how air pollution levels, parks and green spaces, and lifestyle affect health. The study involves measuring substances in blood and saliva samples called "biomarkers of health". These biomarkers are naturally produced by the human body in response to stress and disease. The study is conducted by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
You may be able to take part in the study if you are:
 An adult of at least 18 years of age
 Live in the Raleigh or Chapel Hill, NC metropolitan area
 Have lived at your current address for at least three years

You will be asked to:
 Visit EPA Human Studies Facility at 104 Mason Farm Road, Chapel Hill
 Complete a questionnaire
 Complete simple physical examination
 Have blood drawn and collect saliva for analysis of biomarkers of health
 You may also be asked to collect a stool sample at home
 You may also be asked, within a year after completing this initial survey, to participate in a follow-up study involving four more visits to EPA.

You will receive $ 100 for participating in this study. If you participate in a fecal microbiome survey, you will receive $ 75. If you enroll in the follow-up survey, you will receive $ 420 for completing all procedures.

Our office hours are Monday-Friday from 8am to 5pm EST.
