Screening Areas

Areas & Communities

The ARDAC study participants come from many urban, rural and remote communities from across NSW. When the study first began we were screening in 37 primary schools from 12 different screening locations. Currently the ARDAC study visits nearly 200 high schools from 15 different locations! We are also conducting an increasing number of home visits with participants who have left school.
