The National Children's Study (NCS) is a large, long-term study designed to detect environmental influences on the health and development of children. Waukesha County, Wisconsin, was selected as 1 of 7 "Vanguard Centers" currently funded to finalize and lead the implementation of the study protocol. The authors provide an overview of key design and planning processes that will be used at all NCS Vanguard locations, the specific approaches to be used in the NCS Waukesha Country Vanguard Center, and information about Wisconsin physicians and other health care professionals can become involved in working with the NCS.
