(Volunteers sought for a CARE Study)….They are looking for 350 people.
The volunteers need to be from Riverside, San Bernardino, Imperial, Inyo and Mono counties. CARE is the California Regional Exposure Study. It is to determine if there are chemicals in the body that could harm your health. The study will determine if the volunteers have arsenic, lead, mercury or other chemicals in their body. Volunteers will learn what they and their families can do to help reduce their contact with these chemicals. To participate you must be 18 years of age or older, and be able and willing to give a small blood and urine sample. Participants will receive the results, information on how to reduce contact with the chemicals and a $50 gift card. To Participate go to cdph.ca.gov/CARE. The word CARE is upper case.
