AMWA has pledged support to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) All of Us Research Program.

  • All of Us seeks to leverage America’s rich diversity to ensure that historically underrepresented populations are included in clinical trial research.
  • All of Us seeks to enhance research and science to identify ground breaking treatments for today’s top health issues. Together, AMWA, All of Us and you, as a potential participant, have the opportunity to change health and health care now and for generations to come.
  • All of Us supports community-based researchers in their pursuit of better understanding health and treating disease. Through vigorous research from diverse communities and research initiatives, we can band together in ensuring the benefits of personalized and precision medicine are available to everyone living in the United States.

The All of Us Research Program is an ambitious and bold effort to gather health information from one million or more people living in the United States. Using this information, researchers will seek to better understand how differences in people’s environments, lifestyle, and genes affect health. Through this research program, researchers will also seek to uncover how these factors work together to predict precise, and tailored, treatment options, an approach called precision medicine.

The success of All of Us and its potential impacts on the future of health depends on all of us as potential participants to share our information. In coming together, we can make a difference on the future of health. For more information about how you can sign up and become part of the All of US Research Program, visit the All of Us website.
