What is All of Us New England?

The New England Hub for the All of Us Research Program is based at Massachusetts General Hospital, Brigham and Women's Hospital, Newton-Wellesley Hospital and Boston Medical Center. All of Us is run by the National Institutes of Health (NIH). We're calling on volunteers like you to represent the greater Boston area.

If you decide to join All of Us, we will ask you to share different kinds of information. We will ask you basic information like your name and where you live, questions about your health, family, home, and work. We will ask you to share your electronic health record. We will also ask you to come to one of our enrollment clinics to give basic physical measurements as well as blood and urine samples.

Researchers can use this data to better understand why people get sick or stay healthy. By looking for patterns, researchers can learn more about what affects people's health. This may create a healthier future for generations to come.
