Joins NIH in Launching the All of Us Research Program to Advance Precision Medicine

On May 6th, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) will open national enrollment for the All of Us Research Program – a momentous effort to advance individualized prevention, treatment and care for people of all backgrounds, including people with disabilities. The All of us Research Program is a historic effort to gather data from one (1) million or more people living in the United States to accelerate research and improve health.

Precision medicine is an emerging approach to disease treatment and prevention that considers differences in people’s lifestyles, environments and biological makeup, including genes. By partnering with 1 million diverse people who share information about themselves over many years, the All of Us Research Program will enable research to more precisely prevent and treat a variety of health conditions. The All of Us Research Program seeks to transform the relationship between researchers and participants, bringing them together as partners to inform the program’s directions, goals and responsible return of research information. Participants will be able to access their own health information, summary data about the entire participant community and information about studies and findings that result from All of Us.

The University of Montana Rural Institute for Inclusive Communities is proud to be part of this initiative that will include people with disabilities and work to improve the health status of people with disabilities across the nation. We encourage you to share this email and information about All of Us Research Program with your colleagues, constituents, family and friends and join the All of Us Research Program (see below).
