All of Us

The All of Us Research Program is working to recruit at least 1 million participants with the goal of building one of the world’s largest and most diverse health research datasets. To do that, it needs to engage a wider range of people than health research has in the past, working closely with community partners to help make this possible. ...

Healthcare disparities in underrepresented populations (including the LGBTQ community) result in imprecise healthcare outcomes and limited access to healthcare.

We're, technically, not allowed to enroll badgers, but the "Big Man" was kind enough to help us demonstrate how easy the All of Us enrollment process is....

The underrepresentation of nonwhite ethnic groups in scientific research and in clinical trials is a disturbing trend. The implications of this problem in the limited realm of clinical trials have been reported, but the roots of the disparity run much deeper. Human genomic databases—collections of all the genetic information that has been sequenced over the years—are also heavily skewed toward people of European descent. Research programs, such as All of Us, aim to change this....

The National Institutes of Health's All of Us Research Program has issued a funding opportunity for a genetic counseling resource to support participants who receive genomic testing and receive results....
