Renown Health President and CEO Tony Slonim, M.D., DrPH, announces phase two of the historic Healthy Nevada Project.
The Healthy Nevada Project is making history again with the opening of phase two genomic sequencing to an additional 40,000 northern Nevadans.
One of the most significant challenges in modern healthcare is identifying solutions to prevent illness and maximize health. We know medical care plays only a small part in shaping our health. Our genetic data, socioeconomic factors and the overall environment all play significant roles in our health and well-being.
That’s why studies like the Healthy Nevada Project are so promising. By forming strategic partnerships with the Desert Research Institute and personal genomics company Helix, we are actively studying the intersection between genetic, clinical, social and environmental data. We will use those insights to help individuals live healthier lives while ultimately improving health statewide.
Learn more about phase two of the Healthy Nevada Project where we are offering an additional 40,000 Nevadans the opportunity to have their DNA sequenced at no cost. Visit healthynv.org for the latest information about our ground-breaking population health study.
