Right now, health care is often one-size-fits-all. But imagine a future where your health care is tailored to you. That’s called precision medicine, and you can help create a resource that allows researchers to conduct thousands of studies on health and disease to improve it. Join us to learn more about how you can be involved in this historic effort.
On April 10, 2021, at 3 PM, community volunteers, including members of HEAL Haiti and the Northeastern Conference of Seventh Day Adventists, will join nursing faculty from Pace University in a community education event on the All of Us Research Program. For a second year, the nursing faculty from the Pace College of Health Professions Lienhard School of Nursing received a grant from the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN), a sub-awardee of the All of Us Research Program.
The event is being hosted by the Goshen Temple of Seventh-day Adventists located on Church Avenue in Brooklyn, NY. Plan to attend either virtually or in-person by registering at https://bit.ly/3vya33p. Due to COVID safety requirements, a limited number of participants will be permitted to attend in person.
The All of Us Research Program, supported and overseen by the National Institutes of Health, is a historic effort to create one of the most diverse health databases ever available to researchers. This can help improve precision medicine, which is based on the individual, and can provide physicians with a better understanding of approaching individuals differently. Healthcare is more effective when people from all backgrounds are part of the research. All of Us is committed to working actively with partner organizations to build trust in communities and educate people about the importance of representation. Including members of groups that have historically been left out of research is important to advancing health for all communities. We’re all human, but we’re not all the same. Often our differences—like age, ethnicity, lifestyle habits, or where we live—can reveal important insights about our health.
We do hope you will join us for this important health information event!
