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.

Developed by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the All of Us Research Program looks to enable a new era in medicine in which researchers, health care professionals, and patients work together to develop individualized care.

All of Us Community Partner

Who is BWHI?

The Black Women’s Health Imperative is a national community partner of the All of Us Research Program.

All of Us wants to speed up health research and medical breakthroughs. To do this, they are asking one million people to lead the way to provide the types of information that can help create individualized prevention, treatment, and care for all of us.

BWHI is calling on Black women to volunteer for this important program. We hope you will help make history and change the future of health.

This could help researchers see how different things, like environment, lifestyle, and genes, can impact health.  This may help develop new medical treatments that are unique to each person.

Who is DREF Research Matters?

The DREF awareness campaign entitled, “Research Matters:  Creating Possibilities to Achieve Health and Wellness for “All of Us” focuses on the objective of creating awareness about how research matters in closing the health disparities gap.  African Americans continue to have the highest incidence, prevalence, and mortality rates from chronic diseases, such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, obesity, hypertension, mental health, and HIV/AIDS, yet they contribute to only five percent of clinical trial participants in America.
