"Using The Preeclampsia Registry allows researchers to easily identify a population eager to volunteer for research into preeclampsia. This makes it easier and more cost effective for researchers to work on preeclampsia in general – a major goal of the Preeclampsia Foundation.

It will also allow researchers to recruit women with minority status into studies examining risk and possible therapies for preeclampsia. Minority women, and their families, who enroll in The Preeclampsia Registry will be supporting this initiative to improve the representation of minorities in medical research, saving the lives of mothers and babies."
