FiftyForward has partnered with the All of Us Research Program
For years, FiftyForward has worked to help adults 50+ live longer, more fulfilling lives within the Middle Tennessee area. Together with the National Institutes of Health (NIH), we are calling on older adults and rural communities to help make history and change the future of health.
The health data you share will be added to the All of Us Research Program database. Researchers can access this data to conduct studies. This could help them see how different things, like environment, lifestyle, and genes, can impact health. This may help develop new medical treatments that are unique to each person.Read More
