What is the All Of Us Research Program?
The All of Us Research Program is a large research program from the National Institutes of Health. The goal is to help researchers understand more about why people get sick or stay healthy. We hope that more than one million people will join the All of Us Research Program. People who join will share information about their health, habits, and what it’s like where they live. By looking for patterns in this information, researchers may learn more about what affects people’s health. The All of Us Research Program will last for 10 years or more. This will allow researchers to study health over time. If you decide to join the All of Us Research Program, you will be contributing to an effort to improve the health of generations to come. You also may learn about your own health.
It is critical for Latinos to be well represented in medical research to ensure our community benefits from future medical advances in treatments and prevention strategies that will allow us to enjoy healthier and longer lives. Since 2018, LULAC has helped the program engage more than 8,000 Latinos across the United States through in-person and digital community events. We’ve hosted Cafecitos, Loterias, and the All of Us Journey, the program’s traveling mobile exhibit.
The Impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic
LULAC recognizes that medical research has never felt more urgent than it does right now during the COVID-19 pandemic. So instead of waiting for change, we want to actively be the change. The All of Us Research Program is dedicated to better health, both in the future and today. In times like this, health research feels especially important and together, we can help make a difference in speeding up research and improving the health of our communities.
