What is the Rochester Epidemiology Project?
The Rochester Epidemiology Project (REP) is a collaboration of clinics, hospitals, and other medical facilities in Minnesota and Wisconsin and involves community members who have agreed to share their medical records for research.

Research studies conducted in the local community may improve the health of people both locally and globally.
