The next health discovery could come from the Latinx community.
Meet All of Us
The All of Us Research Program is inviting you to join researchers to look for answers to some of our toughest health questions. More than 45,000 people in Arizona have shared their health data so that we can better understand how our genes, environment, and lifestyle affect our health.
You don’t need to be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident to join. We will not ask about your residency or citizenship status. We cannot share your status because we will not know it.
Learn about yourself and your health, at no cost.
Did you know that the Latinx community makes up 18% of the population? Yet only 5% are involved in medical research. When groups of people are left out, researchers know less about our health.
What current participants think about All of Us.
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.
People who have diabetes are more likely to develop several eye diseases or conditions, such as diabetic retinopathy, cataracts and open-angle glaucoma. For people who have diabetes, it is important to get regular comprehensive dilated eye exam to identify these…
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…
Childhood obesity is a major public health problem across the globe as well as in the US. Childhood obesity can continue into adulthood and is known to be a major risk factor for chronic diseases such as diabetes, cancer, and…
The proposed study seeks to investigate the associations between SARS-CoV-2 and the development of diabetes. The primary hypothesis is SARS-CoV-2 will be a risk factor for the onset of diabetes. The secondary hypothesis is that SARS-CoV-2 is a predisposing factor…
Despite progress in therapeutic approaches, according to CDC about 50% of individuals with asthma continue to experience asthma attack (Asthma exacerbation) every year. Asthma attack is an acute episode of progressively worsening of asthma symptoms. Uncontrolled asthma (episodes of asthma…
National obesity prevention and intervention strategies may benefit from precision medicine approaches that incorporate integrated data on environments, social determinants of health, and genomic factors. We examined the quality and utility of the All of Us Research Hub Workbench for…
Why Should I Join?
In the past, medical research has left many people behind, including the Hispanic/Latinx 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.
