DETROIT – Henry Ford Health System’s mobile health clinic is visiting select Henry Ford OptimEyes eye care locations in July and August to enroll people in the All of Us Research Program, a landmark research initiative to advance the future of medicine.
Henry Ford leads a consortium in a network of U.S. health care systems and medical centers enrolling people in All of Us, which is gathering information for 10 years or more on how individual differences in lifestyle, environment and genetics influence a person’s health and disease risk. All of Us seeks to enroll 1 million or more people from across the country and from all backgrounders, regardless of health status.
To enroll, people complete a questionnaire and submit a blood sample.
The 39-foot mobile health clinic, aptly named Henry, has scheduled stops at eight Henry Ford OptimEyes locations across the metro Detroit area, beginning July 9. At these locations, people can stop by Henry in the parking lot and enroll in All of Us anytime between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Or, select an enrollment time at your convenience.
