About this study

There are two purposes for this project.

• One purpose of this project is to develop information about Latinos in the Maricopa County area who may be interested in participating in future research studies about health.

• A second purpose is that researchers at Mayo Clinic are developing a new research resource called a Biobank. A Biobank is a collection of blood samples and other information. Participants in the Biobank provide samples of blood, complete a health questionnaire, and allow access to medical records now and in the future. A Biobank is as a library for researchers; instead of having to look for volunteers for each new project, researchers can use samples from the Biobank as well as share information already collected.
