About All of Us
The All of Us Research Program’s mission is to speed up health research breakthroughs.
People from all walks of life will share their health information. Health data from diverse people will help fill gaps in knowledge about why people get sick or stay healthy. The new data could help researchers develop new and better treatments that benefit all of us.
Diversity in a research program is important for several reasons. First, where we live, how we live, and our background can all affect our health. Second, many groups of people have been left out of research in the past. This means we know less about their health.
All of Us wants people to make an informed decision about whether to join. We have worked hard to make the process for joining All of Us clear and detailed. Before you decide if you want to join, we will tell you the purpose of the research program. We will also share the risks and benefits of taking part in the program, and how to withdraw if you choose to leave. People must agree that they understand the program and their rights as participants before they can join.
We have staff who help answer questions about being a participant. You can contact our local team at:
