All of Us: Partnering Together for the Future of Precision Medicine
NIH Director's blog, December 10, 2020

Now in its second year, All of Us is building a research community of 1 million participant partners to help us learn more about how genetics, environment, and lifestyle interact to influence disease and affect health. So far, more than 80 percent of participants who have completed all the initial enrollment steps are Black, Latino, rural, or from other communities historically underrepresented in biomedical research.

What Are the Risk Factors for Lung Cancer?
CDC, November 2020

Your risk of lung cancer may be higher if your parents, brothers or sisters, or children have had lung cancer. This could be true because they also smoke, or they live or work in the same place where they are exposed to radon and other substances that can cause lung cancer.

Family Health History for Patients and Families
NHGRI, November 2020

Find out how learning your family's health history can help you discover your genomic heritage and risks, and guide you in making healthy environment and lifestyle choices.

What is Epigenetics?
CDC, August 2020

While genetic changes can alter which protein is made, epigenetic changes affect gene expression to turn genes “on” and “off.” Since your environment and behaviors, such as diet and exercise, can result in epigenetic changes, it is easy to see the connection between your genes and your behaviors and environment.
