NIH “All of Us” Program Stresses Patient Engagement

Thursday, October 11th Louisiana Health Sciences Center will host a traveling National Institutes of Health (NIH) exhibit. This exhibit is called,  “All of Us.”  LSUHSC is taking part in this nationwide research program that hopes to gather health information from a random sample of 1 million people.

Volunteers will share health and lifestyle information about themselves for research. The goal of the program is to shape the future of healthcare, fast track research, and improve the health of all Americans.

The exhibit will be located in the parking lot in front of the former interim LSU Hospital, 2000 block of Perdido St. (Between Perdido and Poydras Streets and South Prieur and South Johnson Streets) from 8:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. Make sure you come by and become apart of this exciting new program!
