The All of Us Research Program

Faster Research for Better Health

The AAFP, along with 18 national community groups and health care provider associations, has partnered with the National Institutes of Health (NIH)( to promote the NIH’s grant funded initiative, the All of Us Research Program( The program’s goal is simple: to speed up health research and medical breakthroughs.

All of Us is seeking the help of 1 million people—from all races and walks of life—to share their unique health data. With your support, researchers can use collected data to better understand health and disease, which could:

  • Identify a person’s risk for a certain disease.
  • Figure out which treatments work for which people.
  • Join people with the right clinical studies.
  • Test how mobile devices, like cell phones and tablets, can encourage people to take better care of their health.
