Health data aids All of Us Research Program

Posted

The mission of All of Us is simple: to speed up health research. To do this, the program is asking one million or more people to share their unique health data. This information will be added to a database. Researchers can then access this data to conduct thousands of studies on health and disease.

All of Us is a national effort that aims to build the largest most diverse database of health information of its kind that researchers can use to study health and illness. This supports researchers in efforts to understand how different genetic, lifestyle and environmental factors impact health and disease. With this information, researchers can look to improve the ways to diagnose, prevent and treat health conditions. This could lead to improved health for generations to come.

University of Arizona and Banner Health's Role

The University of Arizona and Banner Health are partners of the All of Us Research Program.

The University of Arizona and Banner Health are calling on volunteers in Arizona and Northern Colorado, hoping to make history and change the future of health. The health data shared will be added to the All of Us 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.
