What is the All of Us Research Program?
Dr. Rodgers and Mr. Dishman explain that the All of Us Research Program gives a million volunteers an opportunity to help shape the future of health care.
DR. RODGERS: Right now, health care is often one-size-fits-all. But imagine a future where your health care is tailored to you. The All of Us Research Program wants to make that future possible.
Hi, I’m Dr. Griffin Rodgers, director of the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases at NIH.
My colleague, Eric Dishman, director of the All of Us Research Program at NIH explains:
MR. DISHMAN: All of Us gives a million volunteers an opportunity to help shape the future of health care. Volunteers share information about their health, habits, and environment. This information helps researchers learn more about what affects people’s health, and helps speed up medical research and breakthroughs.
This is also one of the most unique and ambitious research projects in history, and we need volunteers from all ages, ethnicities, and walks of life across the United States to join our efforts.
