For several months, the All of Us Research Program has been campaigning to raise awareness through our local black print media and radio stations. Perhaps you saw the colorful vans at various community events and buildings where they promoted this groundbreaking research program.
In 2015, President Barack Obama introduced the âAll of Us Research Programâ concept as an initiative designed to cross new frontiers in medicine and eliminate the one-size-fits-all approach to healthcare. He is committed to encouraging genomic / DNA information about patients as a better way to determine the best clinical treatments based on each person’s unique factors. A new medical approach where genetic profiles could determine healthcare decisions, including prescriptions, treatment strategies and personalized treatments for the individual. “Precision medicine” aims to improve health by targeting the exact disease and its uniqueness for each individual.
The “All of Us Research Program”, run by the National Institutes of Health, encourages each of us to “be one in a million.” Collective knowledge, especially among African American and Latin communities, is an essential part of collective knowledge that will ensure better health.
Data on racial trends and positive health outcomes has traditionally shown our Caucasian and Asian American counterparts to be more proactive and generally see a doctor sooner. As a result, our disparity numbers continue to show that we need to be involved in our well-being from the start, as well as knowing more about cultural or historical differences in order for our results to be better.
The Medical College of Wisconsin’s All of Us Research Program ensured that black and Latin communities were informed.
âWhen you know better, you do better, an apt adage, because this campaign continues to reach communities with information through advertisements, radio spots, interviews with professionals; and questions and answers on why you should get involved. Opportunities to sign up and “Be One In A Million” are still available. Let’s change the medicine for you and our families. Make a gift for yourself and your family, this Christmas, join the “All of Us Research Program”.
