This study has three main aims.
The first aim is to continue collecting the same core data as we did in previous follow-ups so we can examine changes in your health and development over the years. The second aim is to assess artery function and health and to identify factors that are associated with impaired artery function. The third aim is to identify the genetic and environmental factors that are associated with eye health. The outcomes of this study will help us to understand factors that influence the health of blood vessels and eyes. The data might also allow us to better understand how the health of your blood vessels and the eyes might predict your future health.
What will participation involve?
This follow up will require you to attend two separate appointments (details below) on two different occasions at venues you have attended before:
- Vessel Health assessment at Raine Study House and the UWA Cardiovascular Research Laboratory in the School of Human Sciences (Exercise and Sports Science), Parkway, UWA (next door to each other). A quick overview of the appointment can be viewed on our video below:
