NIH’s All of Us Research Program

Join us for our All of Us Research Program Fireside Chats!

 

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) announced in May 2018 that national enrollment for the All of Us Research Program, a momentous effort to advance individualized prevention, treatment and care for people of all backgrounds began. People ages 18 and older, regardless of health status, are now able to enroll.

The official launch date, May 6th, 2018, was marked by community events in seven cities across the country as well as an online event. Since then, more than 180,000 people have enrolled in the program. The overall aim is to enroll 1 million or more volunteers and oversample communities that have been underrepresented in research to make the program the largest, most diverse resource of its kind.

“All of us are unique, but today we live mostly in an era of ‘one-size- fits-all’ medicine,” said Eric Dishman, director of the All of Us Research Program. “I’m alive today because of precision medicine and I think everyone deserves that same opportunity no matter the color of your skin, your economic status, your age or your sex or gender. In other words, it will truly take all of us.”

All of Us seeks to transform the relationship between researchers and participants, bringing them together as partners to inform the program’s directions, goals and responsible return of research information. These efforts include building trust among populations historically underrepresented in research. Participants will be able to access their own health information, summary data about the entire participant community and information about studies and findings that come from All of Us.

You can find an introductory video on the All of Us website.

The All of Us Research Program also offers free downloadable materials to help spread the word about the program.
