Harvard                  
Flight Attendant
Health Study

They care about your health. This groundbreaking study by the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health collects data to help understand how occupational exposures impact the health of flight attendants. They began in 2007 with the financial support of the FAA and since then have recruited over 12,000 people in 2 waves.

They are now on the 3rd wave of our study and need YOUR help!

They are accepting participants who are:

  • Current flight attendants
  • Former flight attendants
  • Past participants of the study
  • New participants

Their confidential survey will ask you questions about your job, medical history, and overall well-being. It is IRB security certified meaning your identity will be protected from their view and your personal information will never be shared with the public. Your employer will not be able to find out that you participated in this study nor will have access to your answers under any circumstance.

The knowledge they gain from your responses will be extremely valuable to their group and the community. It will help them better understand an occupation that impacts so many.
