Accelerate Health Research and Medical Breakthroughs - The National Institute of Health's All of Us Program Information Meeting

The University of Louisiana at Lafayette College of Nursing and Allied Health Professions, in collaboration with the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) invite you to join us at the UL Lafayette Student Union, Atchafalaya Grand Ballroom, 620 McKinley Street, Lafayette, LA 70503 on January 23, 2019 from 2-4pm to receive information about the national launch of NIH’s All of Us Research Program.

The All of Us Research Program is a nationwide program promoted by the U. S. Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services and the Director of the NIH investigating how the type of medical treatment we receive could be impacted by our biological differences.

The goal of the AACN is to utilize the nursing profession, and thus UL Lafayette College of Nursing and Allied Health Professions, to spread information about this research program to all individuals in our communities. The NIH aspires to build a research cohort of more than 1 MILLION people.

At our meeting, you will be introduced to the ideas of biological research and Precision Medicine, while equipping you to spread the word about participation in this nationwide study. Please register for the event at

Please contact Dr. Denise Linton at if you have questions about the event.
