Over ten years ago, the Canadian Partnership for Tomorrow’s Health, then known as the Canadian Partnership for Tomorrow Project, recruited its first participant. Today, it is Canada’s largest population health study with more than 330,000 participants who share a vision of a healthier Canada.
The contributions of CanPath participants enable researchers to study the environmental and biological causes of disease, ultimately improving the health of Canadians and people around the world.
A few CanPath participants shared their stories about why they joined the project and what they believe will improve health in their communities. Thank you to all participants!
