“This study will benefit those who are just starting out and those who will be here long after I retire. Thanks again.” Flight Attendant Health Study Participant
We are a consortium of researchers from Dartmouth College, Harvard University School of Public Health, and Roswell Park Cancer Institute who are dedicated to improving our understanding of flight attendant health. Our goal is to align resources to bring you information about health, current research, and the opportunity to participate in ongoing studies. Through our collaboration, we hope to provide retired, current, and future flight attendants a gateway to understand occupationally related health conditions.
These studies both gather vital Flight Attendant health information and also study practices that may improve Flight Attendant health and well-being. We can only do this with your participation.
We welcome your thoughts, your questions, and your stories.

Voices from the Harvard Flight Attendant Health Study Participants:
“THANK YOU FOR TAKING TIME TO DO THIS STUDY! YES, I was shouting!”
“This is definitely a profession that takes a toll on our health.”
“This study will benefit those who are just starting out and those who will be here long after I retire. Thanks again.”
“Wonderful research! More research is definitely needed about the negative health conditions related to . . . the work requirements of being a flight attendant!”
We understand relatively little about flight attendant health…

Hundreds of pilots currently flying are managing depressive symptoms perhaps without the possibility of treatment due to the fear of negative career impacts. This study found 233 (12.6%) airline pilots meeting depression threshold and 75 (4.1%) pilots reporting having suicidal thoughts.
