What is the Promise of All of Us?
Dr. Rodgers and Mr. Dishman share the benefits of volunteering to participate in the All of Us Research Program, including learning more about your health.
DR. RODGERS: The All of Us Research Program is looking for one million people to lead the way toward better health. Are you willing to be one in a million?
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: To make your health better, we need to learn more about the differences that make each one of us unique. We’re creating a research community of one million volunteers who will share their unique health data to create one of the richest, most diverse datasets of its kind that can accelerate health research. The information you provide will lead to new discoveries that may improve the health of generations to come.
One exciting aspect of All of Us is that participants will get to see their own data. By participating, you may learn more about your health than ever before.
