(Women Engaged in Advancing health Research in Oregon is a prospective epidemiology study)
WEAR (Women Engaged in Advancing Health Research) in Oregon
The overall mission is to collect health, genetic, and laboratory data over 10 years from women over 65 years old to advance health research. We hope this first-of-its-kind cohort study in Oregon will help physicians and scientists develop new early detection and prevention strategies in blood cancer and in heart disease.
Older women without a history of cancer.
The women in this study will be 65 years of age or older, have no previous history of cancer and live in Oregon or the Vancouver Metropolitan area. Our goal is to have as many as 15,000 women across Oregon take part in this study. We will collect health surveys and a blood sample every 1-2 years.
