Health care today is often one-size-fits-all. But what if health care could be tailored just to you?
That’s the purpose of the National Institutes of Health’s (NIH’s) All of Us Research Program—a historic effort to help researchers speed up health breakthroughs by learning why people get sick or stay healthy.
The All of Us Research Program has a clear mission. All of Us will gather data from 1 million people or more living in the U.S. The program needs volunteers who reflect the diverse make-up of America to be truly helpful – from various races and ethnicities, age groups, locations around the U.S., gender identities, sexual orientations and health statuses.
All of Us is not one single health study. It’s a database that researchers can use to run thousands of health studies.
How can you help?
The program is asking people from all over the country to join. If you sign up, it’s up to you to decide how much data you want to share. By joining, you could be one in a million in a research program that may change the future of health.
BCBSTX is partnering with All of Us to help spread the word and inspire you to join. Together, we’re working to help change the future of health.
Many people and communities have been left out of biomedical research. Your participation is important to help better the health of your children, grandchildren, and future generations by supporting possible breakthroughs in medicine.
