Intergenerational Impact of Genetic and Psychological Factors on Blood Pressure


Genetics - Adult | Genetics - Pediatric

What is the purpose of this trial?

The Intergenerational Blood Pressure Study seeks to understand how genetic, psychological, and environmental factors affect high blood pressure in Black/African American women and their young children. This study is a partnership between the Yale School of Nursing and the Yale School of Medicine and funded by the National Institute of Nursing Research. As part of the study, families will complete 4 face-to-face interviews with the study team. Blood pressure, height, weight, and saliva (spit) for DNA is taken for both mother and child. Mothers take a computer-based interview to answer questions about their and their child’s health, their parenting stress and experiences, their mental health, and their experiences of racial/ethnic discrimination. Mothers will receive a $25.00 gift card at each of the 4 interviews and the child will receive a book. Interviews are scheduled at the time and location that is most convenient for the mother and the research team travels throughout CT.
