What’s New With the OHS?

Since 2010, the Ontario Health Study (OHS) has been working hard to build a platform for chronic disease research. Working together with the research community and Ontarians across the province we are now following the health of about 225,000 people and have collected more than 40,000 blood samples. We’re building a database of health information and a biobank so researchers can better understand the link between genetics, lifestyle and environment—and the role they play in our health.

In this section, you’ll find information about the various Study activities and upcoming initiatives.

One of the great things about conducting a study online is the opportunity to communicate with participants on a more personal level. With that goal in mind, we have created a new personalized homepage for you. This homepage features health information we think you may be interested in based on the answers you provided in your online questionnaire.
