The foundation of the study design is a Community Registry and Biorepository (the “Registry”) of 50,000 planned participants in Cabarrus County and Kannapolis, NC. Longitudinal data are obtained through annual follow-up and consented access to electronic health records (EHRs). We will describe the Registry and give an overview of the enrolled population based on collected data.  We will also describe prospective biomarker studies that are leveraging this optimized resource of processed samples and rich data for translational research, and the informatics infrastructure that bridges the different facets of the Study.  Lastly, the speakers will discuss the ongoing efforts to partner with Cabarrus County health care providers to access participants’ EHRs, and a pilot study designed to inform longitudinal EHR data integration and validate self-reported clinical data.
