The U.S. government is now accepting volunteers(志愿者) for a huge new nationwide health project. The government hopes to find one million people who will share their DNA and 10 years of health patterns. Researchers hope that by studying such a large group of people, they can learn why some people escape illness and others do not. They also hope to find better ways to prevent and treat diseases. Congress has approved $1.45 billion for the project over the next 10 years. But the money depends on whether enough people around the country will sign up online or through participating health centers. More than 25,000 people have already received early entry to the project over the past year. Currently, volunteers must be at least 18 years old. The study will be open to children next year. Volunteers must share electronic health records and blood samples. They must also answer questions about their diet, sleep, and other lifestyle factors. They may also wear devices to monitor their daily health. Participants can choose to see their own test results. They can then share those results with their own doctor before the study reaches any final conclusions.
