Baptist has partnered with Conversant Bio to participate in an observational study. Conversant Bio’s work involves using biospecimens obtained during scheduled procedures. These biospecimens include blood taken at the same time blood is drawn for physician ordered tests and/or unused tissue from a surgical procedure that is not needed for diagnosis or treatment. The biospecimens obtained are sent to researchers who work with all disease types.   Participation may assist these researchers in developing new treatments or improving procedures for detecting diseases. There is no increased risk to participate and participation is strictly voluntary.
