PROTECTING YOU, YOURS & THEIRS

Early detection of disease-causing variants in the genes associated with these conditions has the power to improve health outcomes in Healthy Nevada Project participants and raise awareness in family members. The Healthy Nevada Project is excited to introduce more community-based studies in the future that will benefit the population of Nevada.

Healthy Nevada Project’s Milestones

Learn more about the study’s progress and positive impact on residents of Nevada below.

Knowledge Is Power
Betsey Brownfield’s Healthy Nevada Project, Helix genetic test, showed she carries the BRCA1 mutation. She began taking action to prevent the odds of getting cancer. She had an MRI, which was negative for breast cancer. She is continuing to monitor her breast health and is deciding whether or not to have a double mastectomy.

Knowledge Is Power
Jordan Stiteler’s dad died suddenly of a stroke nearly ten years ago — at only 45 years old. Her grandfather died at age 40. Now through the Healthy Nevada Project’s no-cost genetic testing, she is closer to understanding why that may have happened. And she can take proactive steps to prevent the unhealthy symptoms that often lead to a stroke.
