Event Details

On May 23,
the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs will host the National Institutes of Health’s All of Us Journey, a traveling, hands-on
exhibit to raise awareness about the All of Us Research
Program
. All of Us aims
to speed up health research and medical breakthroughs. To do so, All of Us is asking 1 million volunteers
to share different types of health and lifestyle information – information like
where you live, what you do, and your family health history.

 

West Roxbury
is one stop on the All of Us Journey’s
national tour. T
he U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs invites you to attend this event to
learn more about the All of Us Research
Program and how it could enable research to more precisely prevent and treat a
variety of health conditions.

WHAT           

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs invites the West
Roxbury community to visit the All of Us Journey
and learn how you can help change the future of health.

Thursday, May 23

8:30am – 2:30pm


WHERE           

West Roxbury VA Medical
Center

1400 VFW Hwy
West Roxbury, MA 02132


WHY           

Unlike a single
research study focused on a specific disease or community, the All of Us Research Program will create a
research resource to inform thousands of studies, covering a wide range of
health conditions. This information could help researchers better understand
health differences and improve health for generations to come.
