We launched our first Health Concerns Survey to the Research Goes Red community in May 2019.

While access to care, weight, and brain health remain key concerns for many, the health of loved ones has become increasingly important, moving into the top 5 health concerns in 2021. This isn’t surprising, as concerns about the impact of the pandemic on friends and family have been top of mind for so many. Also increasing in importance were wellness concerns such as anxiety and stress as well as mental health and depression.

Women's top health concerns in 2021 have changed since our first survey in 2019, with the health of loved ones becoming increasingly important.

We set out on this mission to map human health with the hope that our work may inform the future of health research.
