No Research About Us Without Us

NCIL is a proud partner with the All of Us Research Program. We are excited to share our support for “No Research About Us Without Us.” This statement highlights why accessible health research is important for people with disabilities. It also shares how All of Us is an accessible health research opportunity. Last year, a group of disability advocates wrote this statement as a message to the disability community.

The All of Us Research Program is inviting one million people from across the U.S. to help build one of the most diverse health databases in history. They welcome participants from all backgrounds and communities. All of Us encourages people to participate who are often left out of heath research, including people with disabilities. Researchers will use this data to learn how our biology, lifestyle, and environment affect health. This may one day help them find ways to provide more personalized treatments and care for all of us.
