The International Childhood Cardiovascular Cohort Consortium
The International Childhood Cardiovascular Cohorts (i3C) Consortium includes seven cohorts in the United States, Australia and Finland. Since the 1970s the cohorts have collected data on cardiovascular risk factors in childhood and have followed participants into midlife. As participants are entering their 50s and early 60s, this consortium represents a unique opportunity to explore the association of childhood risk factors with adult cardiovascular events.
Most of our publications have appeared in major general medicine (e.g., NEJM), cardiovascular (e.g., Circulation, JACC, JAHA, European Heart Journal, Hypertension) and pediatric (e.g., Pediatrics, Lancet Child & Adolescent Health) journals.
