“From Dr. No to Dr. Know: The Importance of Community Scientists” with All of Us Wisconsin, the Network of the National Library of Medicine and SciStarter
Join All of Us Wisconsin, the Network of the National Library of Medicine and SciStarter for a one-hour live, online event: “From Dr. No to Dr. Know: The Importance of Community Scientists”
Researchers need your help to change the future of medicine. The All of Us Research Program is inviting one million people across the U.S. to help build one of the most diverse health databases in history. They welcome participants from all backgrounds, and researchers will use the data to learn how our biology, lifestyle and environment affect health. This can help researchers find ways to treat and prevent disease.
This event will feature a panel convened by All of Us Wisconsin, so come ready with your questions about the future of health research!
The panel includes:
Bashir Easter, PhD - Assistant Director Milwaukee, UW All of Us
Vivian King - Communications Advisor, UW All of Us
Leslie McAbee, PhD - Milwaukee Outreach Coordinator, UW All of Us
Mirtha Sosa Pacheco - Milwaukee Program Manager, UW All of Us
Robert Jackson - Raising the Bar, Inc., Community Partner All of Us
