All Of Us

The future of health begins with you.

The All of Us Research Program has a simple mission. We want to speed up health research. To do this, we’re asking one million or more people to share their health information. In the future, researchers can use this to conduct thousands of studies.

What is the All of Us Research Program?

The All of Us Research Program is a large research program. The goal is to help researchers understand more about why people get sick or stay healthy.

We hope that more than one million people will join the All of Us Research Program. People who join will give us information about their health, habits, what it’s like where they live, and if they will want information about their DNA. By looking for patterns in this information, researchers may learn more about what affects people’s health.

The All of Us Research Program will last for 10 years or more. This will allow researchers to study health over time.

If you decide to join the All of Us Research Program, you will be contributing to an effort to improve the health of generations to come. You also may learn about your own health.

What is the role of FiftyForward?

FiftyForward is a National Community Engagement Partner with the All of Us Research Program from the National Institutes of Health. Our role is to educate, excite and facilitate enrollment in the All of Us Research Program by reaching out to historically underrepresented populations including older adults.  FiftyForward also trains peer ambassador volunteers to engage their communities and inspire others to enroll in this new and exciting research effort.
