Academic Article

Abstract

  • Introduction: The All of Us Research Program is funded by the National Institutes of Health. The aim of the program is to gather data from at least 1 million people of diverse backgrounds living in the United States to accelerate research and improve health. The purpose of this article is to discuss the collaboration of the All of Us Research Program and the National Association of Hispanic Nurses (NAHN) to increase awareness of the All of Us Research Program in Latino communities. Method: A community-based education approach by NAHN chapters across the country was used. The Sprint 1 grant was funded to increase awareness in health care providers of Latino communities. The Sprint 2 grant was funded to increase awareness in Latino communities. Results: A total of 8 NAHN chapters were selected to disseminate the All of Us Research Program information. These initiatives reached more than 156,000 health care providers and the chapters participated in 31 community-based activities across the country reaching thousands of Latinos. Discussion: The collaboration between the All of Us Research Program and NAHN was instrumental in disseminating information to the Latino population. Developing trust in Latino communities is an essential component of program success.
