Asian Health Coalition - Official National Community Engagement Partner of the All of Us Research Program
As part of the Precision Medicine Initiative, the mission of the National Institutes of Health’s All of Us Research Program is to gather information from one million or more people to help researchers learn how to fit the right treatments to the right people.
All of Us is asking people from all over the U.S. to join so that the research reflects the diversity of our country. People who join will provide information about their health, habits, and what it’s like where they live. By looking for patterns, researchers may learn more about what affects people’s health.
The Asian Health Coalition is a Community Engagement Partner in the All of Us Research Program, and established the Asian Engagement and Recruitment Core (ARC) to shape and implement the All of Us strategy and roadmap to create culturally appropriate, cost-effective, and scalable education and outreach for Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians, and Pacific Islanders (AANHPIs). The ARC is composed of seven community-based organizations with the Asian Health Coalition as the lead and two national organizations.
We train our fellow ARC members, lead community discussions, and provide input on All of Us engagement strategies and educational materials.
ARC’s Partner Organization Reporting Tool (PORT)
The Asian Health Coalition created PORT (Partner Organization Reporting Tool) for all ARC partners to utilize in reporting metrics and outcomes from engagement activities that promote All of Us Research Program. Through PORT, we also provide educational and capacity building resources, as well as posts details of ARC meetings and events.
