Delta Research and Educational Foundation (DREF)
The Delta Research and Educational Foundation (DREF) has partnered with the All of Us Research Program
The Delta Research and Educational Foundation (DREF), in collaboration with Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. (DST) and the National Council of Negro Women (NCNW), is conducting a national health initiative entitled “Research Matters: Creating Possibilities to Achieve Health and Wellness for All of Us.” The objectives are to engage, educate and ultimately enroll African Americans in the National Institutes of Health (NIH) All of Us national registry.
Through work with the All of Us Research Program, DREF aims to encourage the participation of African Americans in clinical trials and biomedical research, thus creating a database primarily comprised of diverse and traditionally underrepresented populations. Together, we can be a part of the solution for achieving increased health and wellness for our families.Read More
