Researchers need your help to change the future of medicine. The All of Us Research Program is inviting one million people across the U.S. to help build one of the most diverse health databases in history. They welcome participants from all backgrounds, and researchers will use the data to learn how our biology, lifestyle, and environment affect health. This can help researchers find ways to treat and prevent disease.
This event will feature a panel convened by All of Us Wisconsin, so come ready with your questions about the future of health research!
The future of individualized medicine may depend on an army of one million volunteers. And scientists want you to get involved. The All of Us Research Program is a key part of Citizen Science Month. All of Us promises to take personal data from a diverse cross-section of volunteers and turn it into groundbreaking insights about the complex roles our genes, lifestyles and environments play in our health.
