Cancer, heart disease, stroke and brain health all impact the quality of life of people living in Canada, and increase also the cost of health care. The CAHHM study has enrolled CPTP cohort participants (along with other participants in CAHHM recruited form other cohorts) and will integrate CPTP core questionnaire data of these participants, to better understand the early causes and risk factors of subclinical vascular diseases and how they progress to disease state. We are also interested to determine how the places in which we live and work influence our lifestyles such as physical activity, food intake, and stress. Specifically, the CPTP core questionnaire data will inform the socio-demographic, medical history, lifestyle factors, family history related to cancer and chronic diseases risk. By better understanding the causes of poor health and subclinical and clinical conditions, we will be able to identify key risk factors, and learn how to identify poor health early in order to optimize health services access and treatment for at risk individuals.
