Mothers, Infants Invited to Participate in Child Development Study

October 7, 2004

The Mt. Hope Family Center is conducting a study to promote successful child development and to improve relations between mothers and their babies. If you are a mother with an infant about one year of age and are experiencing stress, you may be eligible to participate.

The program, which is called MIGHT (Mothers & Infants Growing Healthy Together), will provide valuable information about how mothers and children relate to one another. Women of any age and who have a limited income are invited to call the MIGHT recruiter at (585) 275-2991. Participants will receive transportation, child care during research visits, assistance obtaining services, and compensation for their time.

Mt. Hope Family Center is an internationally recognized treatment and research institute that promotes positive child development and healthy families under the direction of Dante Cicchetti, professor of psychology, psychiatry, and pediatrics at the University of Rochester.
