Arkansans asked to participate in national health study


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – The “All of Us” program created by the National Institutes of Health is in Little Rock.

On the group’s web site, it says “The All of Us Research Program is a historic effort to gather data from one million or more people living in the United States to accelerate research and improve health. By taking into account individual differences in lifestyle, environment, and biology, researchers will uncover paths toward delivering precision medicine.”

The large blue bus is on UAMS’s campus till Friday.  

The group is asking volunteers to donate samples of blood and urine, in addition to fill out a survey. This will develop into part of a national database. 

“What we are trying to do is use all of this data to create treatments that work for everyone and create new forms of precision medicine,” defined the “All of Us” tour supervisor.

“It’s very important for us to get individualized care that we can get,” mentioned one volunteer.

You can cease by all day Thursday and Friday. It is situated off of Hooper on the UAMS campus.
