AAFA Celebrates the National Launch of the All of Us Research Program

 

On May 6, 2018, the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA) joined in nationwide celebrations for the launch of the National Institutes of Health’s (NIH’s) All of Us Research Program. This program is a large-scale effort to gather data from 1 million or more people living in the United States to:

  • Improve health outcomes
  • Identify new treatments for disease
  • Begin a new era in preventive care and medical treatment

All of Us is an innovative and bold approach to research that has the potential to benefit everyone living in the United States by moving toward medical care tailored to individual needs. AAFA recognizes the importance of supporting the NIH in this program’s efforts. We encourage our community members to learn more and get involved. Together, we can drive better outcomes, earlier disease identification and precise prevention and treatment solutions.

The future of health is in our hands. Together, we can ensure diverse communities, individuals and groups are included in this effort. AAFA is an official champion of the All of Us Research Program. Learn more about what it means to be a participant at joinallofus.org.

Precision Medicine Initiative, PMI, All of Us, the All of Us logo and “The Future of Health Begins With You” are service marks of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

Hey Everyone... 

I was contacted and asked if I would agree to an interview about having difficulty paying for my asthma med, and lo and behold... Here's the Bloomberg story:

Hopefully, this article will help raise awareness for folks like us, who struggle, not only to simply breathe, but also when we reach the pharmacy counter and are forced to pay outrageous prices for our medicine.
