The Saint Regis Mohawk Health Services, in collaboration with the University of Albany, is conducting a research project to study the impact of environmental contaminants and how they affect the reproductive health of Akwesasne Women. The research project examines women between the ages of 21-35, who are not currently taking hormonal birth control and are not pregnant or nursing. The women are followed through one menstrual cycle, typically 25-30 days, depending on the individual. The participant is asked to complete questionnaires, give blood on Day 3 of their period and collect daily saliva samples. After 100% completion of all project requirements, the participant receives a check for $180. Each participant will receive copies of all results.
