Healthy Infants and Children's Clinical Research Program (HICCUP)

Healthy Infants and Children's Clinical Research Program (HICCUP): CTV News

HICCUP was designed to harness the generous and giving spirit of the southern Alberta community to overcome this problem and provide the opportunity for improved child health research.  We are building a large sample of healthy children and parents willing to consider participation in healthy control research. HICCUP provides a direct opportunity for children, families, and communities to directly contribute to the advancement of research and child health in Alberta. Many families wanting to “give something back” can do so by volunteering their time to help child and community health in a positive way.
