The Future of Health Begins with You: All of Us Research Program

Precision Medicine Initiative, PMI, All of Us, the All of Us logo, and “The Future of Health Begins With You” are service marks of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

The All of Us Research Program is an effort to gather data from one million or more people living in the United States to accelerate research and improve health. The program will be open to people both healthy and sick, from all communities.

Unlike a single research study focused on a specific disease or population, All of Us will serve as a national resource to inform many different studies covering a wide variety of health conditions.

Participants will have opportunities over many years to provide data about themselves that will help researchers learn more about how individual differences in lifestyle, environment, and biological makeup can influence health and disease.

By taking part, you will contribute to an effort to advance the health of generations to come.

The All of Us Research Program is operated by the National Institutes of Health in collaboration with partner organizations across the country, which will help collect and store participant data.

What is the All of Us Research Program?

The All of Us Research Program is a long-term research effort that is expected to last for at least a decade. The long-term data may help researchers understand the impact of environmental factors on health, track the progression of a disease, or chart the effectiveness of a type of treatment for individuals over time. Data that program would like to collect over time include electronic health records, responses to questionnaires, information from wearable devices, and blood and urine samples.

Participating in the All of Us Research Program

Participants will be asked to complete questionnaires and share information about their health history, lifestyle habits, and environmental exposures. They may also be asked to provide access to their electronic health records and to go to a local enrollment center to have physical measurements taken and to provide blood and urine samples.

Precision Medicine

Precision medicine is health care 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 health care teams find the treatment that will work best.
