The RISE FOR HEALTH study (RISE) is an initiative of the Prevention of Lower Urinary Tract Symptoms (PLUS) Research Consortium, which was formed by the NIDDK in 2015 to develop the science to improve bladder health in women and girls. RISE is designed to identify risk and protective factors for bladder health and lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) and to estimate the distributions of bladder health and bladder health knowledge, attitudes, and beliefs in women of all ages across the life course. This will be accomplished by conducting a population-based prospective cohort study. A sample of individuals who live within the study base, i.e., the county containing each PLUS clinical research center and each adjacent county, will be invited to complete two baseline surveys and then two follow-up surveys one year later. A subset of participants will be invited to attend an in-person evaluation to collect additional clinical information and biologic specimens.
Our lead scientists for Lower Urinary Tract Symptoms research studies include Victor Nitti, MD.
