The All of Us Research Program is a historic effort to gather information from one million or more people living in the United States. All of Us is a health research program funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
The mission of the All of Us Research Program is to accelerate health research and medical breakthroughs, enabling individualized prevention, treatment, and care for all of us.
COVID-19 Scientific Activities
WHO CAN PARTICIPATE
Eligible adults who live in the United States can join the All of Us Research Program. You do not need to be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident.
WHY SHOULD I JOIN?
If you join, you will be contributing to research that may improve health for everyone. Our goal is to understand why people get sick or stay healthy. Here are some examples of what researchers might be able to discover from their research:
HOW DO I JOIN?
To join, visit the All of Us Research Program website,
www.JoinAllofUs.org/juntos. You can also download the All of Us Research Program app (iOS version, Android version).
You will be asked to sign up with your email address or mobile phone number. Because All of Us is research, you will also be asked to complete an informed consent process. This process tells more about what is involved and the risks and benefits of joining.
WHAT WILL YOU ASK ME TO DO?
If you decide to join the All of Us Research Program, we will ask you to share different kinds of information. We will ask you basic information like your name and where you live. We will ask you questions about your health, family, home, and work. If you have an electronic health record, we may ask for access.
We may ask you to go to a local clinic or drug store for a free appointment with us. At this appointment, we will collect basic physical measurements, including your height, weight, and hip and waist measurements, as well as your blood pressure and heart rate. We might ask you to give samples, like blood or urine, at the appointment.
DOES IT COST ANYTHING?
Joining the All of Us Research Program is free and won’t cost you anything more than a little bit of your time. All activities are free. There are no costs to you or your insurance.
If you use the All of Us Research Program app on your smartphone, it will count against your data on your phone plan. You can set the app to use only Wi-Fi to avoid this.
If we ask you in the future to go to an All of Us partner center to be physically measured and give blood or urine samples and you decide to do it, we will offer you a one-time compensation of $25. It may be in the form of cash, a gift card, or an electronic voucher.
Your information could help researchers to make discoveries. If any of their research leads to new tests, drugs, or other commercial products, you will not get any profits. These inventions will be the property of the researchers who develop them or the places where they work.
WHAT ABOUT MY PRIVACY?
Your privacy is very important, and we will take great care to protect it if you join. Here are a few of the steps we will take:
