The All of Us Research Program Brings the Future of Health to Richmond, Virginia

Posted by on April 28th, 2023 Posted in: All of Us Research Program


All of Us Research Program

Richmond Public Libraries will host the National Institutes of Health’s All of Us Journey, a traveling, hands-on exhibit that raises awareness about the All of Us Research Program. The experience will allow interested visitors to join the program right on board, where they can answer surveys and give their physical measurements and blood and urine samples. The All of Us Journey will be in Richmond, Virginia on May 1-4, 2023, as part of its national tour.

The mobile exhibit includes an opportunity for visitors to sign up to participate in the program. Features include:

  • A virtual reality experience.
  • Private rooms for physical measurement and bio sample collection
  • An interactive station where participants can write a note to share with others about their inspiration for joining the program.

The All of Us Research Program aims to speed up health research and medical breakthroughs. To do so, All of Us is asking 1 million volunteers to share different types of health and lifestyle information—information like where they live, what they do, and their family health history.

The program is open to people both healthy and sick, from all communities. Unlike a single research study focused on a specific disease or community, the All of Us Research Program will create a research resource to inform thousands of studies, covering a wide range of health conditions. This information could help researchers learn more about different diseases and treatments and improve health for generations to come.

The All of Us Journey engages community members nationwide and raises awareness about the All of Us Research Program through various educational activities and experiences.
