Let’s take a closer look at what you can expect after testing.
You will receive your sequencing results from our testing partner, Helix. While it could take up to a few months, we generally expect Helix to finish sequencing your DNA in 4-8 weeks. You will be notified via email when your sample has successfully reached the lab. Once your DNA has been sequenced, you will have access to your own person Healthy Nevada Traits App featuring ancestry and trait information. You can choose to purchase other apps in the Helix App Store but are not obligated to do so.
Note: All third-party transactions made through the Helix store are independent and not affiliated with the Healthy Nevada Project.
We are returning clinically actionable results to participants. If you choose to be notified of your risk and genetic risks for CDC Tier 1 conditions, you will receive a phone call from a clinical care coordinator explaining your personal report, what lifestyle changes you can make to reduce your risk and how to help your family test.
We are currently screening for Familial Hypercholesterolemia, Hereditary Breast and Ovarian Cancer Syndrome, and Lynch Syndrome. As the Project evolves and more reports are added, you will continue to be notified if you are at risk for genetic health risks. Please keep in mind, analyzing this information for thousands of participants takes time. We appreciate your patience and assure you anyone at risk will be notified.
If you agree to be contacted, our team will send a follow-up survey at a later date. By providing your anonymous responses, you are strengthening the Project to learn more about the health and health risks of our community.
This email survey will be sent from Renown IHI and if you complete this survey, you will be entered to win an iPhone XR free of charge. The odds of winning are approximately 1 in 5000 but could change at any point in the future.
Nevadans over the age of 18 years are welcome to join, therefore, please invite your family, friends, and co-workers to join this groundbreaking study.
