MOAD Study Progress

As we reported last quarter, the racial distribution of our participants shows a similar distribution to Baltimore County [74% Caucasian, 20% African-American, 3% Asian per the 2000 Census, as reported on censusscope.org]. This suggests that we are getting an accurate representation of moms in the area.
