Purpose of study: HealthPartners Institute is part of the All of Us Research Program. All of Us is funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The goal of All of Us is to improve health for generations to come.
All of Us is asking people across the United States to join and share their unique health information. The program is using the data that participants share to build a large database that researchers can use for studies. Their findings could help improve health for everyone.

The Connect for Cancer Prevention Study
Principal Investigator: Pamala Pawloski, Pharm.D., BCOP, FCCP
Study sponsor: The National Cancer Institute (NCI), part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH)
Location: HealthPartners Neuroscience Center
Purpose of study: The Connect for Cancer Prevention Study will help us better understand the causes of cancer and how to prevent it. HealthPartners is one of nine health care systems throughout the country to partner with the National Cancer Institute (NCI), part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), for Connect. The study will include 200,000 adults.
Participants will be asked to answer online health surveys, donate samples of blood, urine, and saliva, and share access to their electronic health records. This information will help researchers study the health and behavior patterns that may affect cancer risk. It takes time to understand the causes of cancer, so Connect will go on for many years. The longer you participate, the more we may learn.
Inclusion Criteria: HealthPartners patients between 40 and 65 years old who have never had cancer. People who have or once had non-melanoma skin cancer, or a condition that raises the risk of getting cancer (such as DCIS, or stage 0 breast cancer), can still join.
