The American Nurses Association (ANA) is urging members and other nurses to take part in a long-term study called The Nurses’ Health Study III, aimed at learning more about how women’s lifestyles during their 20s, 30s, and 40s can influence health throughout their entire lives.

The Nurses’ Health Studies, started in 1976, are among the largest and longest running investigations of women’s health factors (such as diet, exercise, birth control, pregnancy), and have led to many insights on cancer prevention, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and the effects of diet and exercise.
