Latina Mother and Child Immune Health Study

In this study, we want to learn about how a mother's experiences of social stress, such as discrimination, may affect the health of a mother and her young child. We also want to learn if the social support that mothers receive helps protect her children's immune and emotional health. Another question we are asking in this study is if there are some immune genes that turn on or off in young children. We want to learn what environmental influences may trigger these changes. We hope this information will give us more information about how to support the well-being of mothers and their young children.
