The Lake Nona Life Project is a long-term community health and wellness research study being launched as an initiative of the Lake Nona Institute, with founding sponsorship from Johnson & Johnson Health and Wellness Solutions, and support from GuideWell Innovation.

Modeled after the famous Framingham Heart Study, the Lake Nona Life Project is designed to study the connections between lifestyles and health among those who live and work in a given community.  

Increasingly, we talk about the importance of lifestyle’s effect on personal health.  But modern communities are a complicated intersection of home and work life affecting diet, activity levels, sleep quality and many other health factors.  The Lake Nona Life Project will give us an unprecedented opportunity to gain new insights into the effects of lifestyle – including how we live and work in our communities – on health and well-being that can help future generations.

Participation in the Lake Nona Life Project is completely voluntary.  Eligible participants will complete a health and wellness questionnaire either online or by phone.  The questionnaire will ask a wide range of questions about personality, health, lifestyle, and will take approximately 30 minutes to complete. Periodically, participants may be invited to join more focused sub-studies on topics related to diverse health problems (e.g. sleep disorders, allergies, stress management). Everything you share will be kept private and you can opt out anytime. 

YOUR PARTICIPATION CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THE HEALTH AND WELLNESS OF FUTURE GENERATIONS.

The Lake Nona Life Project was reviewed by the accredited Chesapeake Institutional Review Board to help ensure that participant’s rights and welfare are protected and carried out in an ethical manner.
