The National Institutes of Health has started collecting data for one initiative in their All of Us project research program, which aims to shed light on social determinants of health.
The program currently has more than 350,000 participants and aims to recruit 1 million or more. The respondents will share information on their health and genetics as well as social conditions to advance precision medicine and knowledge of social determinants of health. The collected data will be available to approved researchers.
Other research has shown that social determinants of health may account for between 30 percent and 55 percent of health outcomes. The survey aims to understand more about these social determinants.
