AUSTIN, Texas, Jan. 24, 2020 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — The National Institutes of Health’s All of Us Journey is visiting multiple locations in Texas throughout January and February to educate communities about the opportunity to participate in a historic medical research effort. The All of Us Journey is an interactive mobile exhibit designed to share information about the All of Us Research Program, which aims to collect health data from one million or more people living in the United States––with the goal of accelerating precision medicine.

An individual’s personal health can be affected by factors such as geographical location, occupation, ethnicity, genetic health history and more. By gathering health data from one million or more participants, from all walks of life, All of Us hopes to build a data resource rich with diversity—particularly from groups who have historically been underrepresented in biomedical research—in order to give researchers a more complete picture of factors that impact health and disease.

Since the tour’s launch in the summer of 2017, the Journey has traveled to more than 38 states and 110 communities across the country, helping enroll more than 7,000 participants in the program. Currently, 8,820 people in Texas are among the more than 319,000 people who have already enrolled in the All of Us Research Program.

The Journey is scheduled for 20 stops across the state between mid-January and the end of February.
