Jesica Kent from HealthITAnalytics writes about The United States Health and Human Services (HHS) Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) recent $21 million dollar grant to fund 46  community centers across the country with the aim of participation in NIH’s All of US precision medicine program. See All of Us: Ms. Kent reports that the grant will allow community health centers to enroll and retain participants in All of Us, a national research initiative which aims to gather data from one million or more diverse US citizens and accelerate healthcare discoveries. “HRSA-supported community health centers’ participation in the All of Us program is a critical opportunity for individuals from all walks of life to be represented in research and support the next generation of medical innovation,” said HHS Secretary Alex Azar.  The All of Us Research Program is a historic effort to gather data from one million or more people living in the United States to accelerate research and improve health. By taking into account individual differences in lifestyle, environment and biology, researchers will uncover paths toward delivering precision medicine.
