Communications and Engagement Partners

Illustrated picture of diverse group of people

Community engagement is at the heart of the All of Us Research Program. Relationship building, information sharing, and collaborative decision-making among All of Us program partners is what drives the program’s success.  

The Division of Engagement and Outreach

The All of Us Division of Engagement and Outreach (DEO) strives to foster relationships with the program’s exceptional communications and engagement partners, building trust, fostering meaningful relationships, and ensuring the perspectives and needs of the community are central to the program’s initiatives. 

The DEO collaborates with All of Us Research Program communications and engagement awardees to raise the public’s awareness of the program. They also support outreach efforts to build lasting relationships with national and community groups. 

The work of our engagement partners is highlighted yearly in an annual report.
