Viome’s research and development team members Ryan Toma and Nathan Duval, who work on product development and clinical studies, will be on hand 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Friday at the Betty Ehart Senior Center to answer questions about their program and recruit participants for a study.
“We are currently recruiting for a study, which aims to understand how human gene expression varies across different populations,” Toma said. “Our study is trying to recruit participants from diverse populations, specifically over the age of 50.”
The participants will schedule a time with Viome staff, to collect a small amount of blood from a finger prick. Those participants will have the opportunity to select their choice of a free HbA1c reading, a free activity tracker or a $20 Amazon gift card.
The Betty Ehart Senior Center is at 1101 Bathtub Row.
