Historically, medical research failed to ethically and rigorously include people who were not white, straight, cisgender and overwhelmingly male in studies designed to expand medicine.
All of Us is a research program from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) that aims to study at least a million people over several years — and they are including us at every level of the research. The goal is to innovate medicine that is more effective and responsive to unique demographic needs.
Brooklyn Community Pride Center is joining dozens of other organizations nationwide to help engage LGBTQ+ New Yorkers, especially transgender people and people of color, with this research program. Join us for this online discussion to learn why this study is important, how this research is different, and how to get involved.
