Marshfield Clinic expands "All of Us" research program

By  | 

The Marshfield Clinic is expanding the "All of Us" research program from Marshfield to Wausau.

"All of Us" is actually a nationwide research project put together by the National Institute of Health. The Marshfield clinic is leading it locally.

The goal is to collect medical information from one million people, 100,000 of them in Wisconsin.

That way, doctors can use personal individual data to treat diseases with precision.

"Once we have all the information, treatments are going to be more precise. People are going to spend less time in the doctor's office," says program director Lisa Kunst.

The goal is to have one million people signed up over the next five years.
