The future of health begins with you.

The All of Us Research Program has a simple mission:  to speed up health research breakthroughs. To do this, we’re asking one million people to help us lead the way in discovering better care for all of us.

What is the All of Us Research Program?

Creating the right health approaches and care for the right person is called precision medicine. Getting the right information to make that happen is the goal of the All of Us Research Program from the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

By understanding people’s health, neighborhood, family, and lifestyle, researchers will have information to better understand health and disease. This information is essential to create a healthier future for generations to come. To get there, we are creating the largest health data resource ever.
