The Healthy Nevada Project – one of the largest health literacy projects in the U.S. – is coming to Tonopah, NV! This is a population health study to obtain de-identified genetic data from Northern Nevada residents to combine with de-identified medical data from Renown Health along with regional weather, geologic and other data from DRI. Our goal is to understand factors that determine health outcomes. One of these factors is your genetics. We hope to learn about how your genetics impact your health trajectory and use this information to help you make better decisions about your health.
If you are interested in participating, our staff will assist you with the consent and registration process, as well as guide you through providing us with a small saliva sample. We will then ship the saliva sample to Helix for processing. You will need to be at least 18 years of age and possess a valid and unique email account. Don’t have an email? We can help you create one!
