Research Results

The Documenting Hope Project is a multi-year research program involving at least two IRB-approved studies. We opened enrollment for our first research study, the CHIRP(TM) Study, in 2018 and continue to enroll participants. Our second study, the FLIGHT(TM) Study opens for enrollment in 2021. As we continue to collect and analyze data we will share new and relevant findings with our community.
