Currently Recruiting

Health Areas

Allergies, Asthma, Infectious Diseases & Vaccines, Primary Health Care, Eczema

Opportunity Purpose

We are exploring the connection between antibiotic use in babies and the risk of developing asthma and allergies as these babies grow up into children. We are engaging a committee of medical and research experts to help shape the messaging from our study's findings and we need parents who can share their pregnancy and postpartum experiences (information seeking, experience with the healthcare system, their child's feeding journey etc.).


Parents will be asked to help us appropriately design and deliver the key messages of the study to future parents so that communication is informative, accessible, respectful, and reaches parents equitably and effectively. The value of parental insight in this project cannot be overstated.
