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.

We want one million or more people to join. People who join will share information. This might be about their health, habits, and what it's like where they live. It might also be about family history and genes. We also want to know if you will want information about your DNA.

Researchers will use this to do studies. This may help improve health for everyone.
