All of Us
A Precision Medicine Research Program for Patients
The All of Us Research Program is part of the National Institutes of Health Precision Medicine Initiative, an historic effort to gather data from one million or more people living in the United States. By examining differences in lifestyle, environment, and biology, researchers will uncover paths toward delivering precision medicine.
The University of Florida is one of a network of more than 25 institutions selected to implement the program. Read more about UF’s All of Us initiative online with UF Health.
What is 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. This will help give health care providers the information they need to make tailored recommendations, relevant to people of different backgrounds, ages, or regions.
How Participation Benefits You
By participating in the All of Us Research Program, you may learn more about your own health than ever before, especially via mobile devices and tablets to encourage healthier habits. If you like, you can even share this information with your health care provider. As an All of Us partner, you will be invited to help guide the program by offering your ideas and letting program coordinators know what works, and what doesn’t.
The first step is to create an All of Us account. You can do this at Get Started – Sign Up, or at an All of Us partner center. You’ll need to provide your name and email address or mobile phone number to enroll. If you have more questions, contact the UF Health All of Us study team by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 855-698-0692.
