If you have a child age 4-13, you may be eligible to participate in the SDSU Wristband Project! 

The purpose of this project is to determine if silicone wristbands can measure chemicals in the environment, such as nicotine in the air. There will be a total of 50 families participating in this project. We are especially in need of families with someone who smokes cigarettes or vapes. This is a fun science project that kids usually enjoy!

Over a week, your child will wear three wristbands on their arm and a small air monitor clipped to their clothes or backpack.

Each day during the week, we will ask you to send us a photo of your child wearing the wristbands and air monitor (excluding child’s face). We will also call on the telephone to ask about your smoking and use of electronic cigarettes and your child’s exposure to them that day.

At the end of the week, we will ask survey questions about your child’s exposure to tobacco smoke and electronic cigarettes. We will also ask you to help collect a small sample of your child’s urine in a standard urine collection cup. The urine will only be examined for traces of exposure to nicotine and tobacco smoke.

We will meet with you twice at your home, or our office if you prefer, for about 30 to 45 minutes. You will receive up to $110 in gift cards for your participation, plus a $10 bonus gift card if you are able to keep your first appointment time as scheduled!
