You are invited to participate in our "Health Data Exploration Project: Personal Data for the Public Good" by filling in one of our surveys. We are looking for individuals who self-track data and for researchers with an interest in conducting research in this area. We are also looking for companies in this space who would be willing to participate in follow-up interviews. There are separate surveys for each of these groups.

The Health Data Exploration Surveys are confidential for individuals and researchers. Your name will not be associated with the survey you took. We estimate that taking a survey and sharing your feedback will take 15-20 minutes.
