Volunteers needed for nationwide study program



Fargo, North Dakota – Volunteers are needed for a countrywide study program sponsored by Essentia Health.

Over a million people are needed to participate in the All of Us Research program. The program’s purpose is to increase sample sizes for health and disease investigations in order to speed up future medical research.

The clinic appointments are being conducted at Essentia Health’s West Acres location in Fargo. The volunteers’ physical measurements will be taken, as well as a potential blood, urine, or saliva sample. Privacy is a crucial element of the process, according to Essentia and the All of Us research program. All of the information gathered will be kept private.

More information on the research may be found here, or by calling 877-340-8058.
