Creating the right health approaches and care for the right person is called precision medicine. Getting the right information to make that happen is the goal of the All of Us Research Program from the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
To get there, we want to create the largest health database ever. By understanding people’s health, neighborhood, family, and lifestyle researchers will have information to better understand health and disease. This information is essential to create a healthier future for generations to come.
What is UW-Madison’s role in the All of Us Research Program?
The University of Wisconsin-Madison is a proud partner of the All of Us Research Program and is a member of the All of Us, Wisconsin consortium. The consortium represents a large and diverse patient population covering the entire state of Wisconsin. All of Us is run by the National Institutes of Health.
UW-Madison is calling on volunteers like you. We hope you will help make history and change the future of health. The health data you share will be added to the All of Us Research Program database. Researchers can access these data to conduct studies.
This could help them see how different factors, like environment, lifestyle, and genes can impact health. This may help develop medical treatments that are unique to each person.
All of Us is powered by participants. We want you to understand each step along the way.
All participants will answer questions about their lifestyle, environment, and health history. Some may also be asked to share their electronic health records. Some may be asked to give blood and urine samples.
The All of Us Research Program is about people. Participants are part of a nationwide community who are working together to change the future of health.
Please take a moment to listen to these participant voices. They all have compelling stories to tell about why participating in this program is important to them, their families, and their communities.
