Learn why participant surveys are so valuable to the All of Us Research Program.


September 2018




It’s been an exciting summer at the All of Us Research Program. Since we opened enrollment widely across the country, many thousands of people have joined our community from all 50 states! A big thank-you to all of our participants for your time, commitment, and trust. In addition to being the director of this amazing program, I am also a cancer survivor and have very personal reasons for wanting to drive research to find the right treatments for the right person at the right time.


We’ve also expanded our newsletter, sent to you every 2 months, to give you more information about the program and health topics that might be of interest to you.


I hope you enjoy your participation in All of Us and encourage others to join, too!


In good health,
Eric Dishman




Our lifestyle, biology, and environment all affect our health. That's why All of Us wants to hear from you. Find out how you can take our surveys, what’s new, and what’s coming soon.






Mental health includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make choices. Many factors play a role in mental health: age, biology, environment, and even what we eat and drink.


People experience stress as they encounter changes in life. Long-term stress may contribute to or worsen other health problems, such as digestive disorders, headaches, and sleep disorders. Stress may worsen asthma and has been linked to depression, anxiety, and other mental illnesses.

This fall, All of Us will release a new tool that will let participants share information about their thoughts and feelings. It will also let participants track their mood for 2 weeks. By doing this, participants can help researchers learn more about the factors related to mental health.





Researchers will use the data collected by the All of Us Research Program to study many different diseases and conditions. It is up to each researcher to decide what they study. You can learn more about the research being done at our website, JoinAllofUs.org.
