All of Us Research Program

As a supporting partner of the All of Us Research Program, NACCHO promotes the initiative's aim to create a research community of one million people who will share their unique health data. The information gathered from participants will be stored in a database so that approved researchers can access this data to explore how factors like environment, lifestyle, and genes can impact health and to develop health interventions that are unique to individuals.

To meet our goal of one million participants, we need your help! Local health departments are particularly well-positioned to spread the word about this program. Learn more about the program below and see how you can get involved.

Webinar Recording: Public Health Implications of All of Us

The mission of the All of Us Research Program is simple: speed up health research and medical breakthroughs. To do this, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) is asking one million people to lead the way to provide the types of information that can help us create individualized prevention, treatment, and care for all of us.

All of Us is part of NIH's Precision Medicine Initiative. Precision medicine is healthcare that is based on you as an individual. It takes into account factors like where you live, what you do, and your family health history. Precision medicine’s goal is to be able to tell people the best ways to stay healthy. If someone does get sick, precision medicine may help healthcare teams find the treatment that will work best. This initiative will help give healthcare providers the information they need to make tailored recommendations, relevant to people of different backgrounds, ages, or regions.

Program participants are asked to answer survey questions and share electronic health records (EHR), but they are always in control of how much information they want to share. Some participants may also be asked to provide blood or urine samples. The health data gathered from participants will be stored in a database. Approved researchers can access this data to explore how factors like environment, lifestyle, and genes can impact health. This may help develop new medical treatments that are unique to individuals and enable a future of precision medicine for all of us.
