The future
of health begins
with you

Too often, health care is one-size-fits-all. But imagine a future where prevention, treatment, and care are tailored for YOU.

That future starts with research that includes all of us.

What is All of Us?

Part of the National Institutes of Health, All of Us is changing how health research is done.

We're building one of the largest and most diverse health databases of its kind.

Researchers are already using this data to learn more about why people get sick or stay healthy, and what makes each of us unique.

They're using this information to find better ways to prevent and treat illnesses and to care for all of us.

But there's more to do.

What All of Us
can do for you

  • If you join All of Us and provide biosamples, like blood or saliva, you may choose to learn more about your DNA:
    1. Your genetic ancestry
    2. Your risk for certain hereditary diseases
    3. Your body's reaction to certain medicines
  • There is no cost to participate other than some of your time. Most people will spend no more than a few hours a year taking part in the program's activities.
  • You can find out about research powered by the data you've shared.
  • You will join a community of people who are already making a difference.

Why All of Us needs you

Many groups have been left out of health research in the past. You can help change that.

Researchers need information from large numbers of people who reflect the diversity of the United States. Our goal is to reach more than 1 million people from all backgrounds.

If you join All of Us, we will ask you to answer health surveys and connect your electronic health records and wearable devices. We may also ask you to share biosamples (like blood, urine, and saliva).

All of this information helps paint a full picture of what makes each of us unique. It helps researchers understand how our health history, genetics, environment, and life experiences impact our health.

Why join All of Us?

I joined the All of Us Research Program because I believe that health care should be as unique as each one of us and I want to be part of it.

Why join All of Us?

Medical research has not always focused on minorities or Latinos. I think it's important for my generation to share our health information to help future generations.

like your name and where
you live. Answer questions
about your health, family,
home, and work.
Provide a

measurements
If you say yes to sharing
your EHRs, you may be
invited to a free
appointment to provide
