The National Library of Medicine and the All of Us Research Program (All of Us) are partnering to provide opportunities for NNLM Members to support health literacy programming, be a resource for library staff, and participate in All of Us activities within their communities.
All of Us is based on precision medicine and aims to build one of the largest, most diverse datasets of its kind for health research, with one million or more volunteers nationwide who will sign up to share their information over time. Researchers will be able to access participants’ de-identified information for a variety of studies to learn more about the biological, behavioral and environmental factors that influence health and disease. Their findings may lead to more individualized health care approaches in the future.
Over the next several months we’ll be highlighting ways you can get involved in the NNLM All of Us Community Engagement Network and learn more about the All of Us Research Program. Today, we’ll be posting two additional articles about some of the services, activities, and resources that the network has to offer. Check them out!
The NNLM All of Us Community Engagement Network also offers funding and programming opportunities for health literacy infinitives for your library. For more information, contact your Regional Medical Library on how to apply.
Visit the NNLM All of Us Community Engagement Network website at nnlm.gov/all-of-us to learn more about the partnership and about how you can get involved! You can also follow us on Twitter, Facebook, and subscribe to the new online newsletter to help you keep track of the latest news with the NNLM All of Us Community Engagement Network.
