The All of Us Team at Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin is building a community interested in improving healthcare in the Milwaukee Metropolitan area and surrounding communities.
What is the All of Us Research Program?
Creating the right health approaches and care for the right person is called precision medicine. Getting the right information to make that happen is the goal of the All of Us Research Program from the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
To get there, we want to create the largest health database ever. By understanding people’s health, neighborhood, family, and lifestyle researchers will have information to better understand health and disease. This information is essential to create a healthier future for generations to come.
What is the role of Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin in the All of Us Research Program?
Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin (Froedtert & MCW) is a proud partner of the All of Us Research Program; we’re a member of the All of Us Wisconsin consortium. The consortium represents a large and diverse patient population covering the entire state of Wisconsin. All of Us is run by the National Institutes of Health.
Froedtert & MCW is calling on volunteers like you. We hope you will help make history and change the future of health. The health data you share will be added to the All of Us Research Program database. Researchers can access these data to conduct studies.
This could help them see how different factors, such as environment, lifestyle, and genes, can impact health. This may help develop medical treatments that are unique to each person.
What do you need to do?
All of Us is powered by participants. We want you to understand each step along the way.
All participants will answer questions about their lifestyle, environment, and health history. Some may also be asked to share their electronic health records (EHRs). Some may be asked to give blood and urine samples.
