VHA LGBTQ+ Health Program

VA All of Us Research Program Newsletter Veterans

The All of Us Research Program is a national effort funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) that will last for ten or more years. The VA is one of the largest partnered healthcare organizations in the program and it is our mission to ensure that all Veterans are represented in this historic effort. We need you to help us achieve this goal!

The goal of All of Us is to help researchers understand more about why people get sick or stay healthy. At the moment, health care is often one-size-fits-all. But imagine a future where your health care is tailored to you. We want to make that future possible. How? With your help, the program is building a rich research database representative of the diversity of the United States to enable thousands of new studies on health and disease. Many groups have been left out of health research in the past - we want to change that.

Over time, participants will share information through surveys, health records, biospecimens, and more. Researchers will use data from All of Us to help fuel discoveries for a wide variety of health conditions.

Studying DNA is a key part of this effort. One side benefit of participation is that you can get your DNA results over time. You might learn about:

  • Your genetic ancestry (where your family came from hundreds of years ago)
  • Your genetic traits, such as why you might love or hate cilantro
  • Whether you may have an increased risk of developing a serious health condition, such as cancer or heart disease
  • How your body might react to certain medicines

Participation in the program may help to drive advances in health for decades to come; for Veterans and for everyone! To learn more and enroll, visit us at You can also call our National VA All of Us Information Center at (833) 805-0426.
