Passing the BALL we are in this together

All of US

BALL has been involved with the Asian Engagement & Recruitment Core (ARC) to promote the All of Us Research Program.  ARC  was established to shape and implement culturally appropriate, cost-effective, and scalable outreach for Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians, and Pacific Islanders (AANHPI) to encourage their participation in the All of Us Research Program. 

The All of Us (AoU) Research Program aims to build one of the most diverse health databases to accelerate research in precision medicine, enabling individualized health care.  With precision medicine, healthcare providers can tailor medical treatment based on our individual differences, acknowledging the impact our genes and environment can have on health. 

The AoU Research Program is led by the NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTH (NIH). It is seeking one million or more people from across the U.S.  By doing so, it hopes to one day help speed up medical research. People who join will share information about their health, habits, and what it’s like where they live.  By looking for patterns, researchers may learn more about what affects people’s health.

BALL aims to encourage more AANHPIs to participate in this research in order to reflect the diversity of the U.S. and to contribute to the development of more precision medicines supporting AANHPIs.
