New and Expecting Fathers: Your Input is Needed!

The Department of Pediatrics' Division of Community Health Research is conducting a survey to learn more about the needs and experiences of new and expecting fathers.
The first year of a child's life is a critical time during which a father's positive influence can promote strong development and decrease a child's susceptibility to health, social, and behavioral problems. This survey aims to learn more about the experiences and concerns related to new fatherhood.
If you are currently expecting a child or have an infant under 6 months of age, visit to participate. The survey will take 15-30 minutes to complete and answers are confidential.
Fathers who participate in the survey portion of the study can volunteer to be contacted for the second part of the study. If you are invited to the second part of the study, a project staff member may contact you by telephone or email to invite you to participate in a face-to-face or telephone interview. If you participate in the interview, you will receive $50.
