The author presents a brief summary of the Nurses' Health Study-I (NHS-I), which was started in 1976 by Frank Speizer, and the Nurses' Health Study-II (NHS-II), which was launched in 1989. She appeals to the critical care nurse members to enroll themselves as a participant in Nurses' Health Study-III (NHS-III), which will examine the influence of changing lifestyles and environmental factors on women, specifically on the effects of nutritional patterns, physical activity and medication use.
