By the end of this year, one in 40 Nevadans will be part of a genetic study.
And that’s just the beginning. The Healthy USA Project is here.
The Healthy USA Project is the brainchild of Reno, Nev.-based healthcare system, Renown Health, and world leader in environmental data, Desert Research Institute. This first-of-its-kind population health study combines genetic, clinical, environmental and social data in new ways to deliver personalized health data to individual study participants while ultimately improving health nationwide.
In addition to receiving genetic sequencing and ancestry information at no cost, we are notifying consenting study volunteers of their genetic risks for CDC Tier 1 conditions, providing genetic counseling and medical guidance to help them make lifestyle changes to prevent future disease.
Impacting – and improving – health for entire populations is at the heart of the Project. More than 35,000+ Nevadans have already joined. The rest of the country is next as we look to expand to new communities across the country.
