Temple Is the Latest to Join a Nationwide Effort to Diversify Medical Research

Temple Is the Latest to Join a Nationwide Effort to Diversify Medical Research

A man interacts with a video kiosk in the All of Us Journey, a traveling exhibit that is visiting communities across the country to raise awareness about the research program.

Temple University recently announced a partnership with the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the University of Pittsburgh to open an enrollment site for the All of Us research program. The nationwide program, launched in 2018, aims to enroll more than one million diverse participants in research by 2023. To date, more than 220,000 adult participants have enrolled.

The NIH has funded more than 100 organizations throughout the U.S. to be partners in the program. Temple is the first health provider  in Philadelphia, and the second such organization in Pennsylvania to join the effort. Neither Thomas Jefferson University nor the University of Pennsylvania — the two largest health systems in the region — would comment about whether they have plans to join the initiative in the future, but they should.
