On Wednesday, February 14, 2018, at 12:00 – 1:00 pm CT, the American Medical Association (AMA) is hosting an informational webinar for physicians to learn about the National Institutes of Health's (NIH) All of Us Research Program, a cornerstone of its Precision Medicine Initiative.

Featuring Dara Richardson-Heron, MD, Chief Engagement Officer for All of Us, the webinar will detail the NIH's effort to gather data from one million or more people living in the United States and form a longitudinal research cohort intended to improve the ability to prevent and treat disease based on individual differences in lifestyle, environment, and biological make-up. Physicians will be instrumental in helping to ensure the success of this program. Therefore, your Academy encourages you to join this free webinar and/or to view these slides for more information about this initiative.
