Welcome to Project Blue!
Project Blue is a new and exciting phase of the MURDOCK Study that encourages participants to follow-up each year, around the anniversary of their enrollment. The MURDOCK Study is a longitudinal research study, which means scientists follow participants incrementally over a long period of time to see how their health changes. This method of studying a community makes the MURDOCK Study a unique and powerful resource to investigators.
Starting in fall 2016, participants’ Annual Follow-Up Forms will arrive in blue envelopes marked with the distinctive Project Blue logo. Watch for your blue envelope to arrive around the anniversary of your enrollment. Project Blue kicks off your annual follow-up period — it’s a great way to celebrate your decision to become one of more than 12,000 people dedicated to helping scientists better understand health and disease.
Our team offers four convenient ways to complete your follow-up form, and you only have to choose one (see below). We’ve made it really easy to follow-up!
Longitudinal research is helpful in determining patterns related to health and disease. More data from large groups of people — like the MURDOCK Study — can provide rich information and insights for precision medicine and ultimately, yield better research results.
