MANAUS, BRAZIL - MAY 29: A mother wearing a protective mask breastfeeds her child while waiting to be tested for coronavirus (COVID-19) at the riverside community of Belavista do Jaraqui, in Negro river, about one hour by boat from Manaus, on May 29, 2020 in Brazil.

UNC is conducting a study surrounding infant nutrition and cognition. They are looking for mothers who are pregnant and/or nursing in the Charlotte area.

There are a few guidelines in regards to the mothers needed, but nothing that is to crazy. The age guidelines are women between the ages of 18-35. If you’re pregnant, then you have to plan to breastfeed. If you are between those ages and already breastfeeding, then you are in a great position.

There are some diet requirements too. I pulled the following diet requirements straight from the study’s site. They are listed below.

  a 3-month diet intervention (consuming either powdered whole eggs or powdered egg whites; egg powder provided)
  a total of 3 sessions across a 3-month period
  blood draws, food diaries, and infant cognitive testing

Now for the payment terms. You will get paid up to $225 bucks. Not too shabby if you ask me. If you want to be involved with this study, you can call 704-250-5018 or email feedingbrains@unc.edu.
