all of us streamEnroll in the All of Us Research Program, an effort from the National Institutes of Health to advance individualized prevention, treatment and care for people of all backgrounds.

Interested employees and students can visit Volker Hall 8 a.m.-1 p.m. Dec. 3-5 and the Hill Student Center Dec. 6-7. Medical Towers, North Pavilion and the Kirklin Clinic will be open for volunteer enrollment 8 a.m.-1 p.m. Dec. 10-14.

All participants who enroll onsite will receive a free pair of earbuds, and the first 10 participants to complete physical measurements and blood and urine collection each day will receive a $10 UAB meal voucher.

Volunteers for the research program, which launched in May, will join more than 25,000 participants across the United States who have already enrolled in All of Us as part of a yearlong beta test to prepare for the program’s national launch. The overall aim is to enroll 1 million or more volunteers and oversample communities that have been underrepresented in research to make the program the largest, most diverse resource of its kind.
