SEAside Webinar: Why Library Partners are Critical to the All of Us Research Program

Class Details

Why are libraries essential to building a comprehensive educational experience for participants in the All of Us Research program? What can your library do to support this initiative?

The NIH All of Us Research Program endeavors to build a databank of genetic information from at least 1 million participants from diverse backgrounds who will share their health data over a period of 10 years with the goal of discovering individualized treatments for and diagnoses of diseases. The All of Us Research Program has partnered with the National Library of Medicine and NNLM to help public libraries in supporting the health information needs of their users by providing health information training for public library staff, funding and other resources to support health programming and activities, and connections to medical libraries and other NNLM members in their area.
