NIH’s All of Us Journey Comes to LSU Health Sciences Center NOLA
On October 11, the LSU Health Sciences Center 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.
New Orleans is one stop on the All of Us Journey’s national tour. LSU Health Sciences Center invites 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.
