The tour was hosted by ​​the Black Greek Letter Consortium (BGLC), which is made up of the nine 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.

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

National Community Engagement Partner

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.
