How to Participate

  • What will we ask you to do? First, we will ask you to consent to participate in the study and to share your data with us. This is completed on the computer.
  • If you decide to join All of Us, we will gather data about you. We will gather some of the data from you directly. We will gather some of the data from elsewhere.
  • We will ask you to answer questions on the computer. We will ask you for data like your name, date of birth, and contact information. We will also ask questions about your health, family, home, and work.
  • We will ask you to come to UC San Diego Health for a research visit so that we can measure you. Measurements include things like your height, weight, blood pressure, and heart rate. We will ask you to give a blood and urine sample after we take your physical measurements.
  • We will ask you to allow us to access your health records.
  • Will you ask me to do anything else? We will ask you to answer a few questions every year or so on the computer.


  • You will not get direct medical benefit from taking part in All of Us.
  • That said, you may indirectly benefit from taking part in All of Us. For example, we will provide ways for you to get access to all of the data you share with us and some of the results about you. This information may be interesting to you.
  • You may learn about your health. You will be able to share your All of Us information with your healthcare provider if you choose. Finally, you will be helping researchers make discoveries that may help future generations.
  • The main risk of taking part in All of Us is to your privacy. A data breach is when someone sees or uses data without permission. If there is a data breach, someone could see or use the data we have about you.
  • We will gather data from you through the All of Us app and/or website. You may be asked to wear a fitness tracker. There is a risk to your privacy whenever you use an app, website, or fitness tracker.
  • Researchers will use basic facts like your race, ethnic group, and sex in their studies. This data helps researchers learn if the things that affect health are the same in different groups of people.
  • If you give a blood sample, the most common risks are brief pain and bruising. Some people may become dizzy or feel faint. There is also a small risk of infection.
  • Taking part in All of Us may have risks that we don't know about yet. We will tell you if we learn anything that might change your decision to take part.


  • If you join All of Us and provide your biosamples (such as blood, saliva, and/or urine), we will analyze your DNA for research. This may take some time.
  • When we process your DNA, we will be able to check your DNA for information that you may be interested in. Some examples include ancestry, traits, or certain health-related DNA results that you can then discuss with your health care provider.
  • You will be able to choose whether to get your DNA results.
  • You will be able to talk with a genetic counselor from our Genetic Counseling Resource about your DNA results.
