The Northern California – University of California (UC) Davis EARLI Study site is a unique collaboration between the UC Davis Department of Public Health Sciences and the UC Davis Medical Investigations of Neurodevelopmental Disorders (MIND) Institute.
Activities at the Northern California – UC Davis MIND Institute Study Site will be under the direction of Dr. Irva Hertz-Picciotto of the Department of Public Health Sciences. Staff at UC Davis will coordinate study activities and will be the main contact with families who may wish to participate.

We would love to hear from all families in the area who have a child with ASD and who are either pregnant now or who might become pregnant in the future.
Remember you do not have to be pregnant now to get in touch!
