Dr. Mardi Crane-Godreau is seeking volunteers of former and current flight attendants to participate in respiratory and vitamin D screening studies.
- Screenings available in the Boston and NYC area.
- We need volunteers who suspect, or have been diagnosed with respiratory disease as well as healthy volunteers.
- There are no age limits.
- If you flew for at least 5 years prior to 1992, and would be willing to participate in this important study, please email: Margaret.A.Crane@Dartmouth.EDU or call (603) 653-9970 and leave a message with your name, email address and phone number.
Thank you in advance for your contribution of time and energy in support of improving human health world wide.
Researchers at Harvard School of Public Health conducted a landmark study in 2007 on this subject, and follow-up today is needed to understand trends in flight attendant health over time.
- Over 4,000 flight attendants participated in the first study. Help us exceed this number.
- The prevalence of respiratory disease amongst Flight Attendants was approximately three times that found in the general U.S. population.
- In addition, sleep disorders, fatigue, depression and heart disease were greatly increased in female Flight Attendants compared to the U.S. population.
