A Role for Everyone
Anyone in the United States will be able to enroll voluntarily in the All of Us Research Program, either directly through a website or with participating health care provider organizations, both of which will begin recruiting in 2017. Participants will volunteer to share core data including their electronic health records, health survey information, and mobile health data on lifestyle habits and environmental exposures. They will also undergo a standard baseline exam for vital signs, medication assessment, and past medical history, and provide a blood sample. Participants will have access to their study results, along with summarized data from across the research program. All of this will be accomplished with essential privacy and security safeguards in place. The All of Us Research Program is a highly interactive research model, with participants as partners in the development and implementation of the research and with significant representation in program governance and oversight. Through this dynamic community, researchers will be able to advance the information derived from this program into new knowledge, approaches, and treatments.
To be most effective and comprehensive, the All of Us Research Program is engaging partners across all communities — scientific, medical, health, and societal — and public as well as private sectors. NIH and its partners will launch a communications campaign when enrollment begins so that people all over the country know that the time has come to join.
