Medical research hasn't always seen you. We're changing that.
Meet All of Us
LGBTQ+ experiences and struggles are unique. You have your own health challenges that require their own solutions. The All of Us Research Program embraces that uniqueness and wants you counted. Engaging in health research means being seen and heard.
We need to hear about your experiences to advance medical research. Join the All of Us Research Program.
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.
Little is known about the general health of gender diverse communities (transgender and non-binary gender identities). We seek to characterize the health and wellbeing of gender diverse individuals...
Sexual minority communities are up to 3 times more likely to have a lifetime substance use disorder, yet individual differences and processes of risk remain unclear. Identifying for whom and why substance use and/or disorder risk is greatest within this…
Individuals who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender (LGBT) are at higher risk for mental health and substance use than individuals who identify as heterosexual. Few studies have extended these findings by testing potential downstream effects of LGBT disparities…
We will explore sociodemographic variables (e.g., gender, sexual orientation, race/ethnicity) in relation to eating disorder diagnoses. We specifically are interested in disparities in the occurrence of eating disorder diagnoses, access to treatment, age of initial diagnosis, and associated distress and…
Cardiovascular disease (CVD) are responsible for a substantial proportion of the morbidity and mortality observed in the general population. Mounting evidence indicates that this impact disproportionately affects minority populations. This disproportionate effect is not only present in minorities defined by…
Why Should I Join?
In the past, medical research has left many people behind, including the LGBTQ+ 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.
