All of Us PA
September 1st, 2023
We’re all different. But when we visit the doctor, our treatments are often the same.
The All of Us Pennsylvania Research Program thinks one day health care should be tailored for you. This is called precision medicine. And research can help us get there.
All of Us wants one million or more people to join. Your participation can help shape the future of health for generations to come. The program will last for 10 or more years. 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. By looking for patterns, researchers may learn more about what affects people’s health. This may help improve health for everyone.
Why should you consider joining All of Us?
People join for many reasons, and we value our participants as partners. Those who join can choose to see their own health information. Soon, this may include information from DNA results and health records. We expect this will include information about:
• Your ancestry (where your family comes from),
• Your traits, such as why you might love or hate cilantro,
• Whether you may have an increased risk of developing a serious health condition,
• How your body might react to certain medicines,
• Other health-related information.
