All of Us: The Future of Health Begins with You

April 01, 2018

Henry Ford Health System, in partnership with the national institutes of health, invites you to participate in the All of Us research program. 

The program goal for All of Us is simple: We want to speed up health research and medical breakthroughs. To do this, we’re asking for one million people to come together to lead the way in enabling better care for all of us.

Participants will share information about their health, including biological and physical measurements, lifestyle habits and environmental exposures. The more researchers know about what makes each of us unique, the more tailored our health care can become. 

This program aims to make advances in precision medicine, which can help inform people about the best ways to stay healthy and help find the right kinds of treatments if you do get sick. 

What will you ask me to do? 

If you decide to join All of Us, we will ask you to share different kinds of details. We will ask you basic information like your name and where you live, questions about your family, home and work. If you have an electronic health record, we will ask for access. We also will ask you to give samples, such as blood or urine. Upon completion, you will be given a $25 gift card for enrolling in the program. 

How long will all of us last? 

All of Us may last for at least 10 years. We hope you will stay involved over time. If you join, you can withdraw or quit at any time for any reason without penalty. 

How do I participate? 

To enroll in the All of Us Research Program, individuals need to be at least 18 years old and currently live anywhere in the United States. They do not need to be citizens.
