Outcomes Research

In order to detect changes in health over time, participants will be asked to provide annual updates to their medical history, family history, and lifestyle information. In addition, participants will be asked to complete surveys about how learning their disease risks has affected their health or health behavior.

Your Ongoing Participation is Important to Us

The CPMC research study is a long-term study, which means we will stay in contact with you as the study goes on to gather more data. Each year, you will be asked to update your medical history, family history and lifestyle information.

In addition, a few months after you view your genetic variant results, we will ask you to provide feedback through the web portal on whether and how you used the information.

Why are we asking so many questions? The goal of the CPMC is to understand how you use your personalized genetic information and if you use this knowledge to improve your health. By telling us whether and how you used your genetic results, you will help us achieve this goal.

From the CPMC research study team: thank you for your participation in this important project!
