Join the cohort today – the FA Health Study is recruiting flight attendants to take a quick survey about work and health history.

You have the chance to take part in an important venture that will help you, your coworkers, and generations of flight attendants to come to know more about an understudied occupation.  Researchers at the Harvard School of Public Health conducted a landmark study in 2007 on this subject, with follow-up in 2015.  Further follow-up is needed to understand trends in flight attendant health over time.

  • Over 4,000 flight attendants participated in 2007, and over 12,000 in 2015.  Help us exceed this number.
  • The prevalence of reproductive cancers was higher among female flight attendants, as compared to the U.S. population.
  • In addition, sleep disorders, fatigue, and depression were greatly increased in female flight attendants compared to the U.S. population.
  • Release of the FAA Report (Coming soon!)
