Published: 10 April 2016

Welcome to episode three of the new Ausmed Handover podcast: The Nurses’ Health Study.

The Nurses’ Health Study is one of the largest and longest running epidemiological studies ever to be undertaken in the history of medicine. Over a quarter of a million nurses have been contributing health and lifestyle data to researchers at Harvard University on a continual basis since 1976, and the information being extracted from this database by scientists has influenced virtually every aspect of women’s health since.
