Together

we can change the face of medicine

The future of health begins with you

The All of Us Research Program has a simple mission. We want to speed up health research breakthroughs. To do this, we’re asking one million people to help us lead the way in discovering better care for all of us.

What is the All of Us Research Program?

Creating the right health approaches and care for the right person is called precision medicine. Getting the right information to make that happen is the goal of the All of Us Research Program from the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

To get there, we want to create the largest health database ever. By understanding people’s health, neighborhood, family, and lifestyle researchers will have information to better understand health and disease. This information is essential to create a healthier future for generations to come.

What is Northwestern Medicine’s role in the All of Us Research Program?

Northwestern Medicine is a proud partner of the All of Us Research Program in the Greater Chicago region. Northwestern Medicine is also a leading member of the Illinois Precision Medicine Consortium – a group of healthcare providers and fellow partners of the All of Us Research Program that represent a large and diverse patient population covering the greater Chicago area and Illinois. All of Us is run by the National Institutes of Health.

Northwestern Medicine is calling on volunteers like you. We hope you will help make history and change the future of health. The health data you share will be added to the All of Us Research Program database. Researchers can access this data to conduct studies.

This could help them see how different factors, like environment, lifestyle, and genes, can impact health. This may help develop new medical treatments that are unique to each person.
