Who will be included in the Generations Follow-up?
The Generations Follow-up is a unique opportunity as we will be involving our Gen2 participants – the original Raine Study kids - as well as their parents! This means if you are the parent of one of our original Raine Study kids, we consider you a Gen1 participant and you will be able to participate in this upcoming follow-up. While we will be contacting participants when we're ready to get you in, you can always contact us to update you contact details or if you have any questions about the follow-up.

This follow-up will run for around 3 years so you'll have plenty of time to come in and see us. We usually will call our Gen2 (our original Raine Study kids) participants in birth order with participants who were born in 1989 being first on the list so if you were born in 1989 or your child was born in 1989 keep an eye out for any messages or call from us in the new year as we will begin booking participants to come in for March of next year.However, as the follow-up will be running over 3 years if we catch you at a bad time we can always reschedule. This also means if you live internationally or interstate we will usually be able to make space for you if you find yourself in Perth over the next few years.What will be included in the Generations Follow-up?
This follow-up will include a variety of tests that we have done in the past which will provide you with an overall health check. These tests make up a core set of standard measures we’ve been taking ever since the Raine Study first began! Some of the tests you will complete during your Generations include a DEXA body scan, a medical and food questionnaire, and a cognitive function test. Why are we having the Generations Follow-up?
Having a follow-up that includes Gen1 and Gen2 will open many new avenues for future research using multiple generations of Raine Study data which, in turn, will add significantly to the ongoing value of the Raine Study. Not only this but the follow-up will add to the rich and historically collected available data we already have at the Raine Study and can help participants better understand their health and wellbeing, and assist future health outcomes.
