Be a part of the simple mission of the All of Us Research Program: speed up health research breakthroughs. Join the one million or more people across the U.S. sharing health data to explore how factors like environment, lifestyle, and genes can impact health. What can we learn to lead us to individualized prevention, treatment, and care for all of us?
June 14, 2019 was a great day for me – an ‘awesome’ day -- as I made my way to Reliant Medical Group's All of Us Research Program office in Worcester, Massaschusetts. Ever since NIH (National Institutes of Health) announced the Precision Medicine Initiative (PMI) I have wanted to participate in future research to help solve some of the challenging medical mysteries we know as patients, healers, and caregivers.
When they opened the All of Us Research Program for one million or more volunteers, I knew that I had a chance to be 'awesome' to help "fuel the development of new treatments for disease, and catalyze a new era of evidence-based and more precise preventive care and medical treatment."
How is this program going so far? Here are some stats:

It involves a complete DNA sequencing of genomes with a goal of shedding more light on how to keep people healthy and manage chronic illness. The All of Us Data and Research Center is open to all.
