Subjects gave written informed consent for participating in all phases of HESP.
HESP staff considered the average of 92 subjects recruited per event adequate to justify using this approach.
HESP appears to have been moderately effective in increasing awareness of HH as a health concern among participants.
Given the current belief that only 10% of affected persons are likely to be diagnosed, it is possible that many of 11 HESP participants who are currently being treated for HH would not have sought medical care for HH without this project.
Another concern is that because a biochemical marker for iron, TS, was used as an initial screening test, it may be that some younger HESP participants will develop iron overload later in their lives.
