On May 23, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs will host the National Institutes of Health’s All of Us Journey, a traveling, hands-on exhibit to raise awareness about the All of Us Research Program. All of Us aims to speed up health research and medical breakthroughs. To do so, All of Us is asking 1 million volunteers to share different types of health and lifestyle information – information like where you live, what you do, and your family health history.

West Roxbury is one stop on the All of Us Journey’s national tour. The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs invites you to attend this event to learn more about the All of Us Research Program and how it could enable research to more precisely prevent and treat a variety of health conditions.

WHAT
The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs invites the West Roxbury community to visit the All of Us Journey and learn how you can help change the future of health.

WHEN
Thursday, May 23
8:30am – 2:30pm

WHERE
West Roxbury VA Medical Center
1400 VFW Hwy
West Roxbury, MA 02132

WHY
Unlike a single research study focused on a specific disease or community, the All of Us Research Program will create a research resource to inform thousands of studies, covering a wide range of health conditions. This information could help researchers better understand health differences and improve health for generations to come.

PRICE
Free
