Hedden Sarra L et al. American journal of epidemiology 2022 10
(Posted: Oct-09-2022 10AM)
Before the pandemic, the program was enrolling approximately 12,500 participants per month at more than 400 clinic sites. In March 2020, all in-person activity at sites and by engagement partners was paused to develop processes and procedures for in-person activities that incorporate strict safety protocols because of the pandemic. In addition, the program adopted new data collection methodologies to reduce the need for in-person activities. Through February 2022, 224 clinic sites have reactivated in-person activity, and all enrollment and engagement partners have adopted new data collection methodologies that can be completed remotely.

Colliding with Collider Bias: Implications for Precision Public Health
D Rasooly et al, CDC Blog Post, May 9, 2022
(Posted: May-09-2022 11AM)
Large-scale genomic studies have uncovered thousands of statistical associations between genetic variants and health outcomes, transforming our understanding of the genetic determinants of human diseases. Nevertheless, study sample selection and attrition over time can bias associations between variables, generating potentially biased estimates for genetic associations. This bias can be magnified in the case of studying phenotypic associations with polygenic risk scores in large scale cohort studies of unrepresentative or highly selected populations, such as the UK biobank, and potentially in the newly launched All of Us Research Program cohort study.
