Learn about diversity in research and join the one million, Oct. 19-20

All of Us Research Program's blue bus 'Journey' with All of Us team members in front

The All of Us Journey mobile exhibit is coming to OHSU Oct. 19-20 as part of its trip across the country to engage communities that have been historically underrepresented in medical research—including Oregon.

Wednesday, Oct. 19 and Thursday, Oct. 20
10 a.m.-5 p.m.
Mac Hall fountain
Marquam Hill campus

The All of Us tour team will be onsite to walk providers, researchers and the public through the traveling education center, answer questions and enroll participants. Providers will find study information and researchers can talk with the tour team about the study protocol and the kinds of data that the study will make available.

Are you interested in what your DNA might be able tell you? During the OHSU visit, the All of Us team is enrolling participants in the program and collecting bio-samples. If you choose to participate, you’ll receive a report that could include results about your ancestry and your predisposition to certain health conditions.

This NIH-sponsored program will enroll one million or more people to help build one of the most diverse health databases of its kind to advance precision medicine. A cohort of this size will have the statistical power to detect associations between genetic and environmental exposures and a wide variety of health outcomes.

The traveling bus features augmented reality and digital tools demonstrating the importance of diversity in research and the power of your participation in health research.

Want to learn more? The program hosts virtual lunch-and-learn sessions every Wednesday and Friday at 9 a.m. Pacific. You can register for those here. You might also like this short video about the program.
