On September 29, 2013 the Ontario Health Study celebrated its third anniversary as an online study. The Study is the largest long-term health study ever attempted in North America and already nearly 225,000 Ontarians have taken the online survey. The information obtained through the survey will help scientists understand the risk factors and causes of chronic diseases and spur the creation of new prevention strategies and treatments. If you haven't already done so please sign up for the Study at https://www.ontariohealthstudy.ca.

It is with great excitement that we announce the launch of the Ontario Health Study’s Blood Collection Program! You have already made a great contribution to health research by joining the Study and completing our first online health questionnaire. Now, if you also provide a blood sample to the OHS, researchers will be able to study the information you’ve already provided in connection with your blood sample. This will give them even greater insight into the various factors that influence health and quality of life. In order to make it possible for all OHS participants to easily provide a blood sample, we have partnered with LifeLabs® Medical Laboratory Services. This partnership makes it easy for OHS participants to visit one of LifeLabs’ 120 locations throughout the province to provide a sample at their convenience. To learn more about the Study’s Blood Collection Program and to locate a LifeLabs facility near you, please visit the OHS website by clicking here.
