CHC is working with All of Us, a new research program from the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The goal is to advance precision medicine. Precision medicine is health care that is based on you as an individual. It takes into account factors like where you live, what you do, and your family health history. Precision medicine’s goal is to be able to tell people the best ways to stay healthy. If someone does get sick, precision medicine may help health care teams find the treatment that will work best.
All LGBTQ Americans deserve to be seen, heard, and understood—especially when it comes to medical research. Understanding how lifestyle, genetics, and environment affect the health of the queer community is what inspires our research. And joining the All of Us Research Program is your chance to help speed up medical breakthroughs that will benefit you and your community.
