The All of Us Research Program is a historic effort to gather data from one million or more people living in the United States to accelerate research and improve health. By taking into account individual differences in lifestyle, environment, and biology, researchers will uncover paths toward delivering precision medicine.
Some communities may be hesitant to trust a research program because there have been times in our history when government-funded research hurt people. There are ethics policies in place so events like this don't ever happen again. In this vlog, All of Us Research Program director Eric Dishman openly discusses the past, and talks about how All of Us is working to build trust with communities for a healthier future.
