NIH’s All of Us Journey Exhibit Comes to NYC’s Weill Cornell Medicine and NewYork-Presbyterian
On August 1st and 2nd, Weill Cornell Medicine and NewYork-Presbyterian will host the National Institutes of Health’s All of Us Journey, a traveling, hands-on exhibit to raise awareness about the All of Us Research Program. All of Us aims to speed up health research and medical breakthroughs. To do so, All of Us is asking 1 million volunteers to share different types of health and lifestyle information – information like where you live, what you do, and your family health history.
New York City is one stop on the All of Us Journey’s national tour. Weill Cornell Medicine and NewYork-Presbyterian invites you to attend this event to learn more about the All of Us Research Program and how it could enable research to more precisely prevent and treat a variety of health conditions.
Weill Cornell Medicine invites the New York City community to visit the All of Us Journey and learn how you can help change the future of health.
- Free event – open to the public
- Hands-on activities on the bus
- Hands-only CPR training (8/2 only)
- Face painting and balloon art for the kids
- Photo booth
Wednesday and Thursday, August 1st and 2nd
11am – 5pm
York Ave between 70th and 71st Streets, Manhattan Upper East Side, New York, NY 10021
Unlike a single research study focused on a specific disease or community, the All of Us Research Program will create a research resource to inform thousands of studies, covering a wide range of health conditions. This information could help researchers better understand health differences and improve health for generations to come.
