On January 20, 2015, President Obama announced the Precision Medicine Initiative (PMI). The program will enroll participants from diverse backgrounds to collect data, which will be shared with researchers working on a variety of important health questions. The program focuses not just on disease but also on preventative and lifestyle changes needed for a healthy life.
PMI's All of Us Research Program invites people from all across the U.S. to contribute health information. This information will form the basis of a dataset that researchers can analyze to identify better ways to prevent and treat diseases.
PMI aims to be a participant-engaged, data-driven enterprise supporting research to prolong health and treat disease.
