Sunday, May 6 was a beautiful sunny day in Pasco, WA for the NIH’s All of Us Research Program National Launch Event to celebrate the opening of program enrollment to adults age 18+ who are living in the United States. NLM through its National Network of Libraries of Medicine is an NIH All of Us strategic partner. NNLM PNR joined with the National Alliance of Hispanic Health (NAHH), Mid-Columbia Libraries, Richland City Public Library and Tri-Cities Community Health along with many other community partners at a Health and Wellness Fair for the Pasco event. The event was held in the Pasco Town Square and featured a main stage with entertainment all day and live-streaming of Dr Francis Collins, Director, NIH, officially launching the event and Eric Dishman, Director, NIH All of Us Research Program, talking about the historic nature of the program and its importance to the future of health. Tania Bardyn, Director, NNLM PNR spoke on the Pasco main stage as did Jane Delgado, President & CEO, NAHH.

Our event had a fiesta feel to it. The NNLM PNR booth was staffed by Cathy Burroughs, Associate Director, NNLM PNR and Michele Spatz, NNLM PNR All of Us Community Engagement Coordinator with assistance from Fanny Cordero, Spanish Interpreter. We shared lots of NLM and All of Us resources throughout the day and yes, even participated in a bit of zumba!
