Elevating Research Recruitment Efforts

Elevating Research Recruitment Efforts 

 The Our Future Health research programme aims to recruit 5 million representative volunteers across the UK. Volunteer criteria specify aged 18 and over, living in England, representative population sample. The programme will create an incredibly rich dataset for research, leading to major new innovations in the prevention, detection, and treatment of diseases such as dementia, cancer, diabetes, heart disease and stroke. Our Future Health partnered with iPLATO to boost their volunteer recruitment efforts across the country
