Project Viva is a longitudinal cohort of mothers and children recruited from Boston-area OB practices in early pregnancy, 1999-2002. Over the past 18 years we have followed more than 1200 moms and kids and evaluated a large number of behaviors and health outcomes. A variety of research projects would be available depending on the student's interests.
