The Health Effects of Wood Smoke Survey is recruiting people to learn how wood-burning stoves affect indoor air and the lungs.
Participants can join if:
- They are 50 to 78 years old
- They use a wood-burning stove to heat their home; and
- They have a lung disease OR have a productive cough (coughs up mucus or phlegm)
What is required
In this study, participants will need to:
- Place an indoor air quality monitor in the home – two times, for one week each time.
- Send their phlegm sample and oral rinse samples twice.
- Take health surveys.
- Record their wood stove use and their symptoms each day for two weeks.
To thank participants for joining, participants will receive:
- A $200 merchandise card
