Participants are partners in the All of Us Research Program. They have access to their information and a say in how the program is run. By taking part, they have a chance to support new discoveries that may help their families and communities.
Benefits of Taking Part
We’re all human, but we’re not all the same. Often our differences—like age, ethnicity, lifestyle habits, or where we live—can reveal important insights about our health. By participating in the All of Us Research Program, you may learn more about your health than ever before, including information about your DNA. Some examples include ancestry, traits, and certain health-related DNA results that you could share with your health care provider.
Who Can Join
All eligible people, living anywhere in the United States, can join the All of Us Research Program. You can sign up directly through JoinAllofUs.org or at a participating health care provider organization.
What You Would Need to Do
All of Us is free to join, and participation will always be free. People who take part in the program will answer surveys on different topics. They will be asked to share their electronic health record. They may give samples of blood, urine, and/or saliva for lab and DNA tests. The health information that participants share with All of Us will go into a secure database. Researchers all over the world can apply to use this data to study many different health conditions. This may lead to better treatments and ways to prevent disease.
