Healthy Nevada Project

Project Description

Since launching on September 15, 2016, the Healthy Nevada Project has become the largest community-based population health study in the world. Ultimately, the Project aspires to offer genetic testing to any Nevadan interested in learning more about their health and genetic risks while serving as a model for other communities across the country. By better understanding how genetics, environment, social factors and healthcare interact we can help predict who may be at greater risk – allowing for quicker diagnoses and the development of more precise treatment.
