Thank you to everyone that participated in Spring 2023. Your results will be mailed to you in 2024. Stay connected with us by website, social media, telephone, or email for updates.
We are continuing to reach out to residents this Fall!
Starting October 10, our team will be going door-to-door to over 1000 randomly selected households in Yellowknife, inviting children and youth (3 to 19) in those households to take part in this important study.
Interviews and Sample Collection: Participation involves a 30-40 minute interview with one of our trained research assistants. We will also ask the child/youth to provide a small sample of their urine and toenail clippings to get tested for arsenic and other metals. In addition, we’ll collect saliva with a swab, to look at specific genes related to arsenic.
Booking Appointments: We are booking appointments between now and December 4, 2023. The interview can be done at your house or at our downtown office and is completely confidential.
