COHS Wood Smoke Survey

Participate in the Survey, Receive $200 Merchandise Card

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)

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
