The Steering Committee provides first level scientific direction to the National Children’s Study. It is the arbiter of issues referred to it by the Program Office, the Study Principal Investigators, and the Executive Steering Committee. It is empowered to make protocol modifications that do not change the direction or cost of the Study, subject to confirmation by the Program Office. The Steering Committee may refer management and operational issues to the Executive Steering Committee.
The full Steering Committee meets face-to-face twice a year. Interim meetings by conference call or video conferencing are scheduled as needed. Business of the Steering Committee is considered closed except to approved observers.
