The overall duration of your participation in this study will be 4 1/2 months at most.
You will be asked to visit our research office at the UC Davis Medical Center for up to 41 visits. Your visits will occur twice a week at some time points, every other day at others, and sometimes you will be asked to come in every day for a brief period. A few times in the study you will be asked to stay at our clinic for several hours or come in multiple times a day. You will not get to pick when these visits occur.
