The All of Us Research Program is searching for participants to help improve the future of healthcare + medicine in Wisconsin. The more researchers know about what makes each of us unique, the more tailored our healthcare can become. 🧬

UW-Madison is a partner and member of the All of Us Wisconsin consortium, aiming to build a community interested in improving healthcare in the Badger state and beyond.

This groundbreaking program is seeking 1+ million volunteers to join the research program. Participants will share information about their health, habits, and what it’s like where they live.

By considering individual differences in lifestyle, environment + biology, researchers will have the information to better understand health, disease, and what affects people’s health. In turn, researchers can explore better treatments, early prevention, and, maybe, even cures for common diseases.
