What’s What: Heart disease takes the life of 1 in 3 women. Participating in research could help change that. Historically, clinical studies have not adequately included women or analyzed women-specific heart health data, yet that is the best way to improve care and prevent heart disease altogether.
Amava Take: Join thousands of women in the fight against heart disease. You can help unlock the power of science to find new ways to treat, beat and prevent heart disease in women through AHA’s Research Goes Red program, in partnership with Project Baseline by Verily. This collaboration unites AHA heart health experts, patients, loved ones and Verily’s leading tools and technologies to truly make a difference. You can choose to contribute through clinical research, surveys, focus groups and more to help improve health for all.
Question and Answers:
How does it work?
After providing some information, you’ll be the first to know when studies matching your preferences open.
Will this affect my insurance or medical services?
Research Goes Red will not share any information with your insurance or medical providers without your consent. You and your doctor will continue to make decisions about your care.
How is the information that I provide stored and used?
The information you provide will be stored in a secure, encrypted database with restricted access. Your data will be used to notify you about relevant opportunities and updates, determine your eligibility for a study and assist with your enrollment and conduct in studies. It may also be used to provide insights about your health and conduct and publish research on health and disease (any personally identifiable information will be removed before publication). The project may also use collected data to build new tools, technologies, products, and partnerships related to health and disease.
What are the benefits of participating in Research Goes Red?
Through Research Goes Red you may test new technologies to help shape the future of disease management and care, get exclusive access to updates, thought leaders and community events and ultimately learn about your own health as you help improve health for all.
