Over the years, many NHS participants have asked us for a document that they can use in the event of disability or death to inform their family and doctor about their NHS participation. In response to this request, we have developed this Authorization for the Release of Medical Records.

If you choose to complete and sign this form, please place it with your will or other personal papers. It will make your wishes about the Nurses’ Health Study known and provide an easy way for your family or doctor to notify us of your health status.
