All of Us

Together we can change the face of medicine

The future of health begins with you

The mission of the All of Us Research Program is simple: we want to speed up health research and medical breakthroughs. We’re asking one million people to help find out things that can enable 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).
 
To get there, we want to create the largest health database ever. 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.

What is the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC)'s All of Us Research Program?

UIC’s All of Us Research Program is part of the Illinois Precision Medicine Consortium. All of Us is run by the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
 
The All of Us Research Program is calling on volunteers like you. We hope you will help make history and change the future of health. The health data you share will be added to the All of Us Research Program database. Researchers can access this data to conduct studies.
 
This could help them see how different things, like environment, lifestyle, and genes, can impact health. This may help develop new medical treatments that are unique to each person.

How Does It Work?

01


Schedule

Schedule an appointment to participate. You can click here, or call our enrollment center at 1-312-996-2778.

02

You will then be an official participant in UIC's All of Us, and the national All of Us Research Program.

03


Participate

All people taking part will answer questions. These questions may be about lifestyle, environment, and health history. You will also be asked to share your electronic health records. We will schedule you at one of our conveniently located enrollment centers for a study visit. At this visit, you will be asked to have your physical measurements taken and give biosamples (blood and urine). This appointment is at no charge.

04


Contribute

We are creating the largest health data resource ever. Your health information will be added to the All of Us Research Program database. Researchers may use this data in health studies. This may lead to the next big medical breakthrough.

Ongoing Engagement

We are just getting started. Over time opportunities to take part will grow. You can be involved as much or as little as you’d like. We may ask you to complete more health surveys, share physical measurements, or provide additional consent for new research studies.

You will always have access to the data you share. This may be interesting to you, and help you learn about your health. We will tell you about the research studies that use All of Us Research Program data.
