Pediatric Cohorts

ECHO taps into existing pediatric study populations, or cohorts, with the goal of enrolling more than 50,000 children from diverse racial, geographic, and socioeconomic backgrounds to become part of the ECHO consortium. These cohort studies analyze existing data and follow the children over time to observe the early environmental origins of at least one of ECHO’s health outcome areas. Each cohort participates with the others to combine data that are collected in a standardized way across the consortium.
