The All of Us Research Program is a large "precision medicine' research program funded through the National Institutes of Health in the United States. The target is to have 1 million participants in the program, who are living in the United States.

The community information materials in this record are current at October 2018 and are targeted at individuals who may be interested in participating in the program.

These consumer materials address the idea of "precision medicine", the aims of the research program, what participation involves for the individual, joining the program and consent,  privacy and sharing of health information and ethical issues such as the use of research findings and commercialisation.

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.
