All of Us Research Program

The All of Us Research Program is a large research program from the National Institutes of Health. Essentia Health is an enrollment partner of the All of Us Research Program. We are seeking participants to share health information to help accelerate health research.

The more that researchers know about what makes each of us unique, the more tailored our health care can become. Learn more about All of Us by viewing our frequently asked questions.

Get Started

Who can join?

Anyone 18 years or older can participate. You do not have to be an Essentia Health patient to enroll. People of every race, ethnicity, sex, gender, and sexual orientation are welcome. You can be healthy, or you can have a long-term health issue. There are no limits to taking part based on your health status.

Currently, we are unable to enroll people who are in prison, unable to consent on their own, under 18 or do not live in the United States.

  2. Give Your Consent
    Now that you have an account, All of Us will ask you to give your consent. You will watch a series of videos, which give you more details about the program. They describe all the types of information you may be asked to give. If you are ready to give your consent, you will electronically sign the consent form.

  3. Agree to Share Your Electronic Health Record (EHR)
    All of Us will also ask you to share your electronic health record (EHR). Sharing your EHR is your choice. If you decide not to share your EHR, you can still answer our health surveys. But you will not be asked to take part in some other parts of the program. All EHR information will be de-identified.

  4. Complete the Consent to Get DNA Results
    Your DNA results could include information about your ancestry (which is where your family comes from), your genetic traits, whether you have an increased risk for getting certain health conditions, and how your body might react to certain medications. You may want to know this information or you may not.

  5. Answer Health Surveys
    All of Us will ask you to answer some health surveys. These are on the Participant Portal. Use your computer, tablet or smartphone to answer the surveys at your convenience. Your name will never be on these. Your answers will help build a wealth of knowledge for the All of Us Research Program database. Approved researchers can use this database to do their studies.

  6. Have Your Measurements Taken
    Once you have completed all previous steps, you will be invited to schedule an in-person visit with one of our research coordinators. This visit is free and does not get billed to your health insurance. At this visit, we may measure your height, weight and blood pressure. We may also ask you to give blood and urine samples. You can choose an enrollment clinic location close to you.
