All of Us Research Program​

Baylor Scott & White Health is excited to announce our participation in the All of Us Research Program, sponsored by the National Institutes of Health.

Medical research has gender, racial, and age gaps. Help us close them.

 
 

What is the All of Us Research Program?

The goal of this program is to help researchers understand more about why people get sick or stay healthy.

People who join will give us information about their health, habits, and what it’s like where they live. By looking for patterns, researchers may learn more about what affects people’s health.

Why should I join All of Us?

You’ll contribute to research that may improve health for generations to come. Our goal is to make advances in precision medicine, which is healthcare based on each individual. Precision medicine can help inform people about the best ways to stay healthy and help find the right kind of treatments if you do get sick. The key to the All of Us Research Program is diversity. The more we know about what makes people unique, the more customized we hope healthcare can become.

The study is led by Dr. Giovanni Filardo and the Epidemiology Department at Baylor Scott & White Health.

The All of Us Research Program represents the hope for all of us to come together to change the future of healthcare. We look forward to making history with you!

What is precision medicine?

Precision medicine is healthcare that is based on you as an individual. It takes into account factors like where you live, what you do, and your family health history. The goal is to be able to tell people the best ways to stay healthy. If someone does get sick, precision medicine may help healthcare teams find the treatment that will work best.

What is the All of Us Research Program?

The All of Us Research Program is a large research program. The goal is to help researchers understand more about why people get sick or stay healthy. People who join will give us information about their health, habits, and what it’s like where they live. By looking for patterns, researchers may learn more about what affects people’s health.

What will you ask me to do?

If you decide to join All of Us, we will ask you to share different kinds of information.

Why should I join All of Us?

You will be contributing to research that may improve health for everyone. Here are some examples of what researchers might be able to discover:

  • Better tests to see if people are sick or are at risk of getting sick.
  • Better mobile apps to encourage healthy habits.
  • Better medicine or information about how much of a medicine is right for each person.

What will you do to protect my privacy?

We will take great care to protect your information. Here are a few of the steps we will take:

  • Information we have about you will be stored on protected computers. We will limit and keep track of who sees the information.
  • We will remove your name and other direct identifiers (like your date of birth) from your information and replace them with a code.
  • Researchers must promise not to try to find out who you are.
  • We will tell you if there is a data breach.
  • The All of Us Research Program has Certificates of Confidentiality from the U.S. government. This will help us fight legal demand (such as a court order) to give out information that could identify you.
