At the HealthTree Foundation for Multiple Myeloma, we gather the information analyzed for research by requesting you to complete surveys. 

If you'd like to know which study surveys are active, visit the Accelerate Research section at your HealthTree Cure Hub profile.

You'll require a validated HealthTree Cure Hub profile to become part of some of our studies. A validated profile means that you've provided access to your medical records. This assures that your profile is complete and contains accurate medical data required for a research study. (Learn How to connect your Medical Records to your Cure Hub profile). 

Therefore, at the start of some surveys, you'll be asked if you agree to share your medical records for the study. If this question is not asked at the beginning of the survey you're completing, it means that it's a study that doesn't require further information or medical data.

HealthTree takes your privacy seriously. Your medical data is yours, it does not belong to HealthTree. If you participate in any surveys or studies, your answers can be shared with research organizations, but your personal information, such as name, email, phone number, and address, is never shared with anyone outside of HealthTree. You can consult our Privacy Policy by clicking HERE.

If you'd like to look at previous studies' findings, you can consult our publications of research studies by going to the HealthTree for Multiple Myeloma Publications.

If you have any questions or would like our help to join a research study, please don't hesitate to contact our Patient Navigators. They'll be happy to help you!

You can send them a message through the chat box on your HealthTree profile, email them at [email protected], or call them at 800 709 1113. Our hours of operation are 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. MST, Monday - Friday.

"Research is to see what everybody else has seen and to think what nobody else has thought."
