The WHI Clinical Coordinating Center (CCC) and four Regional Centers (RCs) have received contract extensions from the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI), securing continued funding through most of this decade.
Nearly two decades following publication of WHI’s landmark clinical trial findings, the collection of participant questionnaire data continues, thanks in very large part to the ongoing efforts and dedication of WHI participants, today ranging between 72 and 103 years of age! WHI’s enormous trove of existing data and available biospecimens continues to fuel numerous innovative paper and ancillary study proposals. The CCC and RCs also continue to support several large affiliated studies, including WHISH, WHISPER, the COSMOS Trial, and LILAC.
