Description of Study:

The purpose of this study is to assess blood vessel function in children. Atherosclerotic heart disease is a slowly developing process which can begin its earliest stages of development during childhood. Our aim is to characterize blood vessel function prior to the development and manifestation of any clinical symptoms of heart disease in healthy children. Your child will be one of approximately 100 participants in this study. Participants will be generally healthy boys and girls between the ages of 7 and 17 years old.

Will participants be compensated for participation?
Inclusion and Exclusion Criteria:

Participants will be generally healthy boys and girls between the ages of 7 and 17 years old. Your child would not be able to participate if he/she is not in good overall health, is diagnosed with any chronic diseases or conditions (i.e. autoimmune diseases, chronic infections, cancers, congenital diseases), has a body mass index that lies outside the “normal” range, or is currently taking any medications which may alter blood vessel function.
