WholeMe with AdventHealth
WholeMe is the first study of its kind to take root in Florida. In partnership with Helix, AdventHealth aims to sequence DNA from 10,000 Floridians in an effort to better prevent, diagnose, and treat diseases. Their goal is to learn how genetic information can be successfully used to advance the standard of care in Florida while also empowering participants with a combination of fun insights about their DNA and, in some cases, potentially life-saving information. AdventHealth believes knowledge is power and they want you to feel in control. To feel empowered. To feel whole.
The Healthy Nevada Project with Renown IHI
The Healthy Nevada Project is a clinical study offering free genetic testing to residents of Nevada. This study aims to create a robust set of data—genomics, medical, and environmental—that enables researchers at Renown Health and the Desert Research Institute to advance the standard of care in Nevada and the nation as a whole. Participants in this study are given insights about their genetic ancestry and the potential influence of their DNA on certain wellness traits; among those who opt-in to receiving potentially medically relevant information, some participants will also learn about their genetic predispositions for certain diseases linked to heart disease and various cancers.
