Baton Rouge, health research should be as unique and diverse as
we are.

Meet All of Us, health research for our community.

Meet All of Us, health research for our community.

In Baton Rouge, our lives and culture are unique. Our health care treatments should be too. Together, we can help researchers make discoveries that may lead to better health treatments. By studying things like our genetic makeup, lifestyle, and environment, the All of Us Research Program aims to find more tailored ways to keep us healthy.

It’s time for health research to include the people of Baton Rouge.

It’s time for health research to include the people of Baton Rouge.

When we go to the doctor, we want care based on our unique situation. Unfortunately, health research has lacked diverse data that represents all of us. The way we get to a future where health care is tailored to our needs is by making sure that diverse communities like Baton Rouge are included in health research. Only then can we look for answers to some of the biggest health questions that impact us, like heart disease and maternal death rates.

We could hold the answers to treating diseases, like heart disease, that affect our community.

All of Us is the largest and most diverse health research program of our time. It helps researchers study how our DNA, family history, environment, and lifestyle affect our health.

Why Join?

Get health information that matters to you, including DNA results at no cost.

When you join, you can get information about yourself, like your weight and blood pressure. You can also choose to get your DNA results, including information that could potentially impact your health.

Today’s research may lead to tomorrow’s treatments. Be included.

In the past, health research has mistreated people, including many racial and ethnic minority groups. The All of Us Research Program wants to help rebuild trust by partnering with our participants to include everyone. Only when all communities are part of health research can all of us be included in future medical advances.

You’re the key to helping researchers find answers to tough health questions.

As researchers study our health data, they may find patterns. These patterns can help researchers understand how different people react to different prevention and treatment plans. The All of Us Research Program hopes that, in the future, these research findings will help health care providers deliver treatments that are tailored to our differences.

What Makes All of Us Different

  • There's no cost to you. Ever.
  • We will return unique, personal health information to you.
  • We want to hear your community’s voice.
  • We value your privacy and encrypt all participant data.
  • We will never sell your health information.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why should I join the All of Us Research Program?

If you join, you will be contributing to research that may improve health for everyone. Our goal is to understand why people get sick or stay healthy.

Also, you will be able to see your All of Us Research Program information, which might be interesting to you. You may also learn about your health. If you choose, you will be able to share your All of Us information with your health care provider.

What will you do to protect my privacy?

Your privacy is very important, and we will take great care to protect it if you join. Here are a few of the steps we will take:

  • Information we collect will be stored on protected computers. We will limit and keep track of who sees the information.
  • We will remove your name and other direct identifiers (like your Social Security number) from your information and replace them with a code. There is a master list linking codes to names. This list is kept secure, and very few people have access to it.
  • To work with your health information, researchers must promise not to try to find out who you are.
  • We will tell you if there is a data breach.
  • The All of Us Research Program has Certificates of Confidentiality from the U.S. government. This will help us fight legal demands (such as a court order) to give out information that could identify you.

Still, loss of privacy is a risk of taking part in the All of Us Research Program. Even without your name, there is a chance someone could figure out who you are. Your information could be misused. We believe the chance of this is very small, but it is not zero.

What is 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, your genes, and your family health history. The goal of precision medicine is to be able to tell people the best ways to stay healthy.
