Participate in the Nurses’ Health Study!

The Nurses’ Health Studies are among the largest and longest running investigations of factors that influence women’s health. Started in 1976 and still running, the information provided by the thousands of dedicated nurse participants has led to many new insights on health and disease. The studies have produced landmark data on cancer prevention, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and the effects of such lifestyle factors as diet and physical activity.

The Nurses’ Health Study is still growing, and is currently recruiting nurses from across the United States for this third study. The study is conducted entirely over the Internet, and is completely confidential.

ANA encourages members and other nurses to consider participating in this long-term study. Your contribution can help identify important nutritional, lifestyle and biological factors which can influence women’s health. Visit the Nurses’ Health Study 3 website http://nhs3.org/  for more information.
