The All of Us Research Program’s goal is to learn how differences between us might lead to different types of treatments. With a goal to have one million people participate in this study, researchers may use this information to improve the health for everyone. The award provides an opportunity to promote NLM products, SEA programs, or SEA member libraries to target populations, and improve understanding and importance in participation of clinical trials, including the All of Us Research program. Funding covers registration and booth fees, travel, and per diems, communication costs, and equipment rental if needed, and associated costs for the exhibit. All exhibits must feature one or more NLM resource, and All of Us informational resources must be made available.
The goals of the National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NNLM) are to advance the progress of medicine, improve public health by providing U.S. health professionals with equal access to biomedical information, and improve individual's access to information to enable them to make informed decisions about their health.
The NNLM Southeastern/Atlantic Region (SEA) relies upon partnerships with network members to achieve these goals by providing training and funding for local outreach programs. The programs are intended to help a variety of users, with a focus on minority and other underserved populations and the health professionals who serve them, make the most effective use of information and decision-support resources that hold the promise of promoting healthy behaviors, preventing costly and debilitating illness, and improving health outcomes when disease occurs.
