ABOUT THE STUDY
My Healthy Maryland Precision Medicine Research is a long-term research study developed by University of Maryland Medicine. We aim to create a resource representative of the diversity of Maryland to advance a broad range of health-related research from understanding the genetic and molecular basis of rare and common health conditions to studies to improve the value and efficiency of our health care system.
We aim to engage as partners in research up to 250,000 participants over a 10-year period. My Healthy Maryland is open to adults who currently live in Maryland. You do not need to be a patient at the University of Maryland to be part of the study.
The My Healthy Maryland enrollment and participant portal is a privacy-protected, secure platform. Researchers who access your data will not be provided with any information that can identify you as an individual.
My Healthy Maryland participants will have the opportunity to learn more about their own health and health practices as well as overall health trends in Maryland.
