Description

NIH’s All of Us Journey Comes to Metropolitan Community College
On May 14 - 17, the National Alliance for Hispanic Health and National Rural Health Association will host the National Institutes of Health’s All of Us Journey, a traveling, hands-on exhibit to raise awareness about the All of Us Research Program. All of Us aims to speed up health research and medical breakthroughs. To do so, All of Us is asking 1 million volunteers to share different types of health and lifestyle information – information like where you live, what you do, and your family health history. Omaha is one stop on the All of Us Journey’s national tour. The National Alliance for Hispanic Health and National Rural Health Association invite you to attend this event to learn more about the All of Us Research Program and how it could enable research to more precisely prevent and treat a variety of health conditions. WHAT The National Alliance for Hispanic Health and National Rural Health Association invite the Omaha community to visit the All of Us Journey and learn how you can help change the future of health. WHEN Tuesday, May 14 – Friday, May 17 10am - 6pm WHERE Metropolitan Community College - South Omaha Campus Mahoney Building Lot Omaha, NE 68107 WHY Unlike a single research study focused on a specific disease or community, the All of Us Research Program will create a research resource to inform thousands of studies, covering a wide range of health conditions. This information could help researchers better understand health differences and improve health for generations to come. ABOUT THE NATIONAL ALLIANCE FOR HISPANIC HEALTH Our Mission: Best Health for All We work to ensure that health incorporates the best of science, culture, and community. We achieve this by listening to the individual, investing in leading community based organizations, working with national partners, examining and improving the resources and systems available, and designing solutions to make health a part of each person’s life. We continually work to improve the quality of care and its availability to all. Our goal is to close the gaps in three key areas: • research, services, and policy; • scientific discovery and benefit for the individual; and, • community services and medical practice. PRICE Free
