Today I joined All of Us, a research community of one million people to lead the way for individualized prevention, treatment, and care for, well, all of us. This project was previously known as the Precision Medicine Initiative.
Many of you know that our family has used whole genome sequencing to look for clues in our daughter’s autism. This blog shares that journey. I have also published peer-reviewed papers to explore the reasons why people share personal health information. Through this research, I am convinced that information sharing will contribute to a learning healthcare system to improve care and lower costs.
It just takes people like you and me to #JoinAllofUs and lead by example.
