6K Connected Members to Research Studies

HealthStreet has connected 6,000+ members to research studies. Thank you to all our community members for participating! The goal of health related research is to improve the lives of people in the community studied and to further healthcare overall. By including the community in research, researches can better understand health problems and can improve health care. HealthStreet was created to include all populations in the research process so that research findings will be a reflection of our diverse community and applicable to the greatest number of people.
