What is the All of Us Research Program?
The All of Us Research Program is inviting one million people across the U.S. to help build one of the most diverse health databases in history. Participants from all backgrounds are welcome to participate. Researchers will use the data to learn how our biology, lifestyle, and environment affect health. This may one day help them find ways to treat and prevent disease.
Receive $25 for participating. All participants will receive $25 after completion of their visit. To complete the visit, participants must create an account, give consent, agree to share their electronic health records, decide whether they want information about their DNA, answer health surveys, have their physical measurements taken (height, weight, blood pressure, etc.), and give blood and urine samples. You will receive a $25 gift card once you have completed these steps to join the All of Us Research Program.
