Ontario Health Study


Last year the Ontario Health Study was initiated.  It  is a large, long-term study involving participants across the province. The Ontario Health Study will follow participants for their entire lifespan to create an extensive database of health-related information that researchers can use to help understand how our genes, environment and behaviour work together to affect our health over time. This knowledge may ultimately improve understanding, prevention, treatment and early detection of a wide range of illnesses.

CASLPO and the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Ontario are supporters.

Take a look at the website for more details.

A recent article about this initiative was also was released by CBC news.
