Would you like to participate in a study measuring the effects of hookah smoking on air, lungs, and hearts?

Dr. Michael Weitzman at the NYU School of Medicine is conducting a research study in homes where hookahs are smoked and in non-smoking homes.

Who do we need?

We need: Adults aged 21-50 who smoke hookah at home, and who live with a non-smoking adult aged 21-50 and a child aged 10-18. All three people will be in the study.
• We need: Adults aged 21-50 who do not smoke and live in a non-smoking home with a child, aged 10-18. Both the adult and the child will be in the study.

What will the study involve?

If you smoke hookah at home: We are conducting home visits to measure air quality while you smoke hookah, and to collect data on heart and lung function, including saliva, urine, nasal samples, and blood, in you and a non-smoking adult and child who live with you, before and after the smoking session.
If you don’t smoke and live in a non-smoking home:
We are conducting home visits to measure air quality and to collect data on heart and lung
function, including saliva, urine, nasal samples, and blood, in you and a child who lives with you.

Each participant will receive financial compensation as a thank you for their time and participation!
