Purpose and Objective

RESILIENCE is having the ability to respond to change or adversity proactively and resourcefully. Throughout history, underrepresented and underserved communities of color have consistently demonstrated tenacity in the face of adversity, inequity, injustice, and racism. As a celebration of an unwavering commitment to excellence, the ROOTED IN RESILIENCE TOUR will provide a holistic view of past, present, and future achievements of a people.

What is the All of Us Research Program?

All of Us, a research program from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), aims to have one million or more volunteers who reflect the diversity of the United States. Researchers will use the participant data collected to study many different conditions, including cancer, diabetes, depression, asthma, and other diseases.

Black Greek Letter Consortium (BGLC)

The Black Greek Letter Consortium (BGLC) is made up of the 9 National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC) organizations, also known as the Divine Nine (D9). These historically Black Fraternities and Sororities support the mission of the All of Us Research Program to advance health equity for those considered underrepresented in biomedical research.

The goal of All of Us developed from the National Institutes of Health is to help researchers speed up health research by understanding why different people get sick or stay healthy.

A key initiative for BGLC is the 2022 Rooted in Resilience Tour. This event will celebrate the unwavering commitment to excellence and amplify our tenacity in the face of adversity, inequity, injustice, and racism.
