How Public Health Can Learn From and Inform the Precision Medicine All of Us Research Program

November 21, 2019, 9:00 am – 10:30 am EST
CDC Roybal Campus, Building 19,  Aud. A

The National Institute of Health (NIH)-led All of Us research program aims to enroll over one million people in the U.S. in a research cohort to improve understanding of how individual differences in lifestyle, socioeconomics, environment, and biology affect health outcomes. Recruiting a diverse research cohort is key to ensuring that findings will be broadly applicable, and All of Us strives to include participants from groups historically underrepresented in biomedical research. Join us to learn more about the All of Us research program, better understand how the approaches used to recruit All of Us participants can inform future public health efforts to address diversity, and share your expertise in increasing diverse participation in your own public health work.
