The National Network of Libraries of Medicine would like to invite public libraries and community organizations to host the All of Us Journey when it visits the MidContinental Region on the following tentative dates:
St. Louis, MO—Monday, April 22- Friday, April 26
Wichita, KS –Tuesday, May 7- Friday, May 10
Lincoln, NE –Tuesday, May 14- Saturday, May 18
Omaha, NE–Tuesday, May 21 – Friday, May 24
The Journey, a project related to the National Institutes of Health’s All of Us Research Program, is a hands-on traveling exhibit that engages community members in learning about the emerging field of precision medicine.
Through an ongoing national tour, the Journey invites visitors to join the landmark All of Us Research Program, designed to accelerate research and improve health. The program aims to sign up a million or more people to provide their health information in order to improve diversity in health research.
The Journey can make visits to events and venues within 2-3 hours of the area during that period. If you or an organization you know is interested in hosting the Journey or you know of any suitable events going on, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or (801) 581-5242.
This opportunity is brought to you by the NNLM All of Us Community Engagement Network, an initiative made possible in partnership with the NIH All of Us Research Program.
The mission of the NNLM All of Us Community Engagement Network is to help public libraries support the health information needs of their communities by providing funding, training and partnership opportunities. In addition, the NNLM All of Us Community Engagement Network will provide opportunities for NNLM Network Members to engage with the All of Us Research Program.
