In order to be a population health study, we must accurately represent the demographics of our region. For 30,000 testing slots in phase two, researchers will focus on matching the demographics that makeup northern Nevada. This means study participants will be eligible based on specific demographic variables including: gender, age group, ethnicity and residence in a rural or urban area of Nevada.
Years of research show that gender, age and ethnicity all play key roles in a person’s health risks. By accurately representing our region, we will be able to better understand the health issues we’re seeing community-wide and how to address them. Fitting these criteria will ensure this landmark population health study mirrors the people of northern Nevada.
