The future of health begins with you.

What is All of Us?

All of Us is a new research program from the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The goal is to advance precision medicine. Precision medicine is health care that is based on you as an individual. It takes into account factors like where you live, what you do, and your family health history. Precision medicine’s goal is to be able to tell people the best ways to stay healthy. If someone does get sick, precision medicine may help health care teams find the treatment that will work best.

To get there, we need one million or more people. Those who join will share information about their health over time. Researchers will study this data. What they learn could improve health for generations to come. Participants are our partners. We’ll share information back with them over time.

Where does UChicago fit?

All of Us UChicago is a partner in the All of Us Research Program in the Illinois region, and as part of the Illinois Precision Medicine Consortium (IPMC). All of Us is sponsored by the National Institutes of Health (NIH). All of Us UChicago is calling on volunteers like you to participate in this initiative to make history and change the future of health.

The health data you share will be made anonymous and added to the All of Us Research Program database. Researchers from all over the world will be able to access this database to conduct studies on the ways that environment, lifestyle and genes can have an impact on health. These studies may help develop new medical treatments that are unique to each person.
