The NNLM All of Us Program Center (NAPC) supports the NIH All of Us Research Program (All of Us) to engage those interested in becoming an All of Us participant and to provide value for those who are currently participating in the program.
We work with public libraries to help communities participate in All of Us and to support the health information needs of their communities. We also train All of Us partners to engage with potential and current program participants.
Medical research hasn’t always been inclusive of everyone living in the United States and the NNLM recognizes the importance of diverse representation in biomedical research. We think supporting participation in biomedical research and advancing precision medicine through digital literacy, health literacy, and community science literacy is important and we hope you do too.
We offer something for every public library, including training, funding, connections, and amazing resources:
The following resources are from NLM, NNLM, and All of Us that can be used by subawardees and partner libraries to engage with your community about digital literacy, health literacy, and the NIH All of Us Research Program.
Making the case for supporting participation in biomedical research

Engaging Virtual Programs
Let us do the heavy lifting – we’ll give you all the tools you need to connect your community with quality and engaging health programs. The NAPC offers quarterly virtual programs to help public libraries connect with their community on health topics that are relevant to them.
Public libraries are ideal for providing access to trusted health information for library users of all ages, which can aid in patrons’ decision-making about their health and that of their loved ones.
What is the All of Us Research Program?
The All of Us Research Program, or All of Us for short, is a research program from the National Institutes of Health (NIH). It is seeking one million or more people from across the U.S. By doing so, it hopes to one day help speed up medical research.
People who join will share information about their health, habits, and what it’s like where they live. By looking for patterns, researchers may learn more about what affects people’s health.
What is the Network of the National Library of Medicine (NNLM)?
The Network of the National Library of Medicine (NNLM) is made up of organizations of all kinds that are engaged in health and wellness in their communities - our Members provide health information resources and services to health professionals, academic communities, and the general public. If you are providing health information through a library, information center, public health department, K-12 school, university, hospital, or other organization, please consider joining the Network of the National Library of Medicine!
