The General Baptist State Convention of WI, Inc., clergymen and community members kicked off its first All of Us Pop Up Clinic at the Convention’s headquarters located at 220 West Keefe Avenue in Milwaukee. President Reverend Dr. Garry Levy, along with other pastors led by example in signing up as participants in the All of Us Research Program. The All of Us Research Program was launched in May 2018 by the National Institute of Health (NIH). Here in Wisconsin, there are three health organizations that make up the All of Us Consortium: Marshfield Clinics, Medical College of Wisconsin and the University of Wisconsin-Madison. All of Us -MKE has partnered with the General Baptist State Convention to increase awareness in about the All of Us Research Program and the importance of diversity in research.

The All of Us Research Program seeks to enroll one million people from across the country in making history as the largest research program ever. The goal is to help researchers understand more about why people get sick or stay healthy. People who join will give the All of Us Research Program information about their health, habits and what it’s like where they live.
