All of Us Seeks Public Input to Inform Plans for Child Enrollment

The All of Us Research Program is an historic effort to gather data from one million or more people living in the United States to accelerate research and improve health. The Child Enrollment Scientific Vision Working Group (CESVWG) of the All of UsAdvisory Panel seeks public input on the pediatric research that the All of Us may be uniquely positioned to enable through the enrollment of children from diverse backgrounds into the cohort.

You have an opportunity to share your thoughts about the following questions by September 12, 2017:

  • What are the most significant short- (0-5 years), medium- (5-10 years), and long-term precision medicine research (>10 years) questions that could be addressed by the inclusion of pediatric populations in the All of Us Research Program? 
  • What are the key gaps in current pediatric study designs that might be appropriate for All of Us to address through the enrollment of children (for example, preconception studies, sibling studies, etc.)?
  • What are the research resources that the inclusion of children into the All of Us Research Program could potentially generate (for example: innovative algorithms, methodologies, etc.)?
