NIH’s All of Us Research Program

The All of Us Research Program is a large research program. The goal is to help researchers understand more about why people get sick or stay healthy.

We hope that more than one million people will join the All of Us Research Program. People who join will give us information about their health, habits, what it’s like where they live, and if they will want information about their DNA. By looking for patterns in this information, researchers may learn more about what affects people’s health.

Why are the Hispanic/Latine communities important to All of Us?

Hispanic/Latine people, like many others, have often been left out of research. The All of Us Research Program wants to change this. By joining All of Us, Hispanic/Latine people can help ensure their communities are included in health studies. These studies could help researchers understand health conditions that are more common in the Hispanic/Latine communities. All of Us is working with community partners, like NHMA, to educate Hispanic/Latine people about the program and how research has potential benefits for their families and future generations.

Why should someone consider joining All of Us?

People join for many reasons. Some people join because they can:

• Learn more about their health.
• Help improve the health of their communities and future generations.
• Help researchers find the best ways for people to stay healthy.

 

The All of Us Research Program will last for 10 years or more. This will allow researchers to study health over time. If you decide to join the All of Us Research Program, you will be contributing to an effort to improve the health of generations to come.

More about All of Us Research Program

By taking into account individual differences in lifestyle, environment, and biology, researchers will have the information to better understand health and disease. The more we know about what makes people unique, the more customized health care can become.

More than 857,000 people have registered with the program by creating online accounts at JoinAllofUs.org since the program’s launch in May, 2016. If you join, you will complete surveys, decide whether you want information about your DNA, safely share your medical records, and you may be asked to give a blood, urine, or saliva sample.


 

“Our goal is to be able to understand exactly how treatment can be individualized, so we can move away from thinking about a one-size-fits all solution.”

All of Us Research Program


 

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.
