The Health Education and Resources Institute (THEARI) is a grantee of the All of Us Research Program, serving as a part of the Community and Provider Gateway Initiative (CPGI). The All of Us Research Program aligns with the mission, vision, and values of THEARI and in partnership with Pyxis Partners and the National Institutes of Health (NIH), THEARI is proud to engage student ambassadors at local educational institutions in Colorado as a unique opportunity to involve young professionals in precision medicine research. THEARI will recruit and train students from local educational institutions to promote the All of Us Research Program.
Students will become an integral part of the promotion and education of the All of Us Research Program and simultaneously support the work that THEARI does to engage, connect, and empower communities. THEARI believes that through the Student Ambassador Program, we can expand local engagement with the All of Us Research Program, build students’ professional skills, and support the overarching goal of the All of Us Research Program to gather data from one million or more people living in the U.S. to create a diverse health database that represents us all. We are excited to announce our first cohort of four students starting their ambassadorship this month. Our cohort consists of a diverse group of students from local schools: one from Denver University and three from Rocky Vista University. Be on the lookout for more in-depth information about their events and activities in the coming months!
The All of Us Research Program is on a mission to help change health research to represent our country’s diversity. We’re collecting health data from over a million people in an effort to help researchers learn more about health. Learn more and join at joinallofus.org/togetherdenver.
