Three Utah libraries will host the National Institutes of Health’s “All of Us Journey,” a traveling, hands-on exhibit that raises awareness about the All of Us Research Program, this month.
All of Us aims to speed up health research and medical breakthroughs. To do so, All of Us is asking 1 million volunteers to share different types of health and lifestyle information—information like where they live, what they do, and their family health history.
Visitors to the exhibit can learn more about the research program and how it could advance individualized prevention, treatment and care for all of us.
Unlike a single research study focused on a specific disease or community, the All of Us Research Program will create a research resource to inform thousands of studies, covering a wide range of health conditions. This information could help researchers learn more about different diseases and treatments and improve health for generations to come.
The National Network of Libraries of Medicine, with a regional office based at the Spencer S. Eccles Health Sciences Library at the University of Utah, has partnered with the All of Us Research Program in a companion effort to deliver consumer health information to communities through public libraries.
