How Can I Be Part of the Heart Hive?
The Heart Hive is hosting a new study from Imperial College London to investigate COVID-19 risk for people with cardiomyopathy and how it has affected health and wellbeing.
We're asking people who DO NOT have heart disease to sign-up to help us look at the differences between people with cardiomyopathy and those without heart disease.
We're asking for people who fit this criteria
over 18 years old with no personal history of heart disease (you can still join if you have diabetes or high blood pressure)
not living in a household with someone with cardiomyopathy
Joining is easy, and we invite all qualified participants to sign up now. Please select "Healthy Volunteer" on the registration form.
The Heart Hive is primarily a platform for people with cardiomyopathy & those with a family history of cardiomyopathy to take part in research. We expect this will be a one-off opportunity for people without heart disease to take part in the Heart Hive but we may invite you to participate in future studies where a comparison group is needed.
Here's why the heart hive is a win for everyone:
The heart hive is an easy way to save lives and work together for a cure.
You're protected. Your data is safeguarded with the highest standards.
You remain in control. You always have a choice about how your data is used.
You're part of collaborative innovation. Researchers can explore possible cures faster with quick access to large datasets.
Together we're standing up to heart disease. It’s a new way we can all take action to help take down heart disease.
How the heart hive works:
The heart hive will provide a platform to connect a community of willing research participants with motivated and highly-skilled researchers.
Participants sign up on the website.
Participants enter their own health data in a short questionnaire (20 mins.)
Participants control their own data and decide which researchers will be given access.
Participants gain access to research projects and self-enroll in studies that interest them.
