The Future of Health Begins with You

All of Us logoThe All of Us Research Program has the opportunity to have a big impact on health and health research for years to come. UW Health and the University of Wisconsin-Madison are key partners in this massive National Institutes of Health (NIH) research program occurring over the next five years that will collect health data from 1 million or more individuals and contribute to the future of precision medicine.

 

Precision medicine is health care that is based on you as an individual. It takes into account factors like where you live, what you do and your family health history.

 

Participants in the NIH All of Us Research Program will be asked to share their electronic health records, have physical measurements taken and provide samples of blood and urine. The program is committed to the safety of the information gathered from each participant, so rigorous security models are used to help ensure data is protected and used ethically and responsibly.

This research has the potential to help us understand who gets sick and why and might help us understand how to prevent and treat disease. To date, this is the largest and most ambitious program of its kind with a goal of collecting data that reflects the rich diversity of our country.

 

The NIH has selected respected, major health and research organizations, like UW Health and the University of Wisconsin, from across the country to partner in this program.
