Health discoveries come from research. Diversity in research comes from you.
Meet All of Us
The next health discoveries could come from the African American community. Share your health data with the All of Us Research Program, the largest health research program of its kind, to look for answers to hard medical questions.
Some past research has harmed Black and/or African American people. Understandably, this has made the community reluctant to take part in research. The All of Us Research Program is committed to doing better. We pledge to be respectful, ethical, and honest in all our work.
Health research that includes the African American community.

A Glimpse at What Researchers are Studying in the All of Us Researcher Workbench
The All of Us Research Program, part of the National Institutes of Health, is building one of the largest biomedical data resources of its kind. The All of Us Research Hub stores health data from a diverse group of participants from across the United States. Approved researchers can access All of Us data and tools to conduct studies to help improve our understanding of human health.
The mortality rate among black American women is about 3 times higher than Non-Hispanic white women. The death rate among other minorities like Non-Hispanic American Indian or Alaska Native, Asian-Pacific Islander is also higher...
The lipid hypothesis was based on an initial evidence that cardiac diseases are associated with high total cholesterol. This hypothesis has significantly changed our lifestyle during the last half century although many contradictory studies exist. Has the association between heart…
Asthma and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) are the two most common respiratory diseases. Therefore, understanding the characteristics and frequency of participants with either of these diseases in the US by analyzing the All of Us database has public health…
We to apply machine learning and optimization to the personalization of treatment sequences for patients with metastatic breast cancer. There are several decisions that must be made when designing a treatment regimen for an individual, such as which treatment to…
The aim of this study is to explore and characterize common functional GI diseases among patients who identify as African American or Black. We are interested specifically in irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). As a part of this research study, we…
Stroke is the second leading cause of death and the leading cause of adult disability in the world, but relatively little is known about the underlying mechanisms that lead to stroke. No mechanism-based treatment or established prevention for hemorrhagic stroke…
Why Should I Join?
In the past, medical research has left many people behind, including the African American community. The All of Us Research Program wants to change that by including everyone. Only when all communities are part of medical research can all of us benefit from future medical advances.
As researchers study our health data, they start to see patterns. These patterns can help us understand how different people react to different prevention and treatment plans. We hope that, in the future, our findings will help health care providers deliver treatments that are tailored to our differences.
When you join, you can get information about yourself, like your weight and blood pressure. In the future, you can choose to receive your genetic results along with guidance on what it means. Your results may tell you about your risk for certain diseases or how your body responds to certain medications. Information about your DNA may help you and your health care providers make health decisions that are better informed and as unique as you are.
How We're Different:
- There's no cost to you. Ever.
- We will return unique, personal health information to you.
- Together, we can more quickly learn about diseases that may affect your community.
- We will share what researchers learn from All of Us data with you.
- We are part of the National Institutes of Health, the largest biomedical research agency in the world.
- Our diversity is our strength. We are building the largest and most diverse health research program of its kind.
