The All of Us team at Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin is building a community interested in helping advance precision medicine research. This includes Milwaukee and satellite cities such as West Bend and Racine.
What is the Role of Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin?
Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW) is a proud partner of the All of Us Research Program, from the National Institutes of Health.
What is the All of Us Research Program?
The All of Us Research Program is a large research program. The goal is to help researchers understand more about why people get sick or stay healthy.
We hope that more than one million people will join the All of Us Research Program. People who join will give us information about their health, habits, what it’s like where they live, and if they will want information about their DNA. By looking for patterns in this information, researchers may learn more about what affects people’s health.
The All of Us Research Program will last for 10 years or more. This will allow researchers to study health over time.
If you decide to join the All of Us Research Program, you will be contributing to an effort to improve the health of generations to come. You also may learn about your own health.
