AACN is a sponsor of the All of Us Research Program, a historic effort supported by the National Institutes of Health to gather data from one million or more people living in the United States to accelerate research and improve health. By considering individual differences in lifestyle, environment, and biology, researchers will uncover paths toward delivering precise healthcare. The program’s mission is to accelerate health research and medical breakthroughs, enabling individualized prevention, treatment, and care for all of us.
A Call for Applications for Mini-Grant Awards has been issued by the All of Us Research Program. The purpose of the awards is to facilitate the engagement of the academic nursing community with the program and its focus on including historically underrepresented communities in biomedical research (UBR). Mini-grant awardees will increase awareness of the program and the importance of participation of members of UBR communities. This initiative uses collaboration between established community partners and academic nursing to disseminate information on the All of Us Research Program.
The application deadline for the mini-grant awards is April 3, 2019. For more information and to apply, click here.
