7月25,美国国家卫生研究院(NIH)宣布他们已选定其精准医学计划(PMI)的第一个社区合作伙伴。

精准医学计划(现改为全面健康研究项目)由奥巴马在2015年提出,计划收集100多万人的遗传、健康、生活方式和环境信息,致力于个性化的医疗诊断,现已招募参与者。

NIH表示,所选择的四个社区合作伙伴将负责提高老年人、西班牙裔和拉丁美洲人、非洲裔美国人和LGBTQ社区对PMI计划的认识,并做好该计划的对外扩展工作。这些社区本年度得到了170万美金的财政支持。

社区的合作伙伴还有FiftyForward,它将分享有关这个计划的有关信息,并传向农村、经济欠发达地区以及老年群体;全国西班牙裔健康联盟将推出双语和地方倡议开推进精准医学计划,克服潜在的挑战。德耳塔研究教育基金和全国黑人妇女理事会合作,促进包容性研究的需要,以减少影响非裔美国人的健康差距。

全面健康研究项目的首席执行官Dara Richardson-Heron表示,这项研究将打破传统研究带来医疗上的突破。我们的愿景就是每个人能够进行个性化诊疗。他们很高兴能够得到社区的支持,改善人们健康。

NIH Selects Community Partners to Promote Precision Medicine Initiative

The National Institutes of Health today announced it has selected the first community partners for the Precision Medicine Initiative's (PMI) All of Us research program.

The PMI was launched in 2015 to gather genetic, health, lifestyle, and environmental information on one million people to fuel research into personalized healthcare. The All of Us program, formerly known as the PMI Cohort Program, is recruiting participants for this effort.

The NIH said that the four community partners it has selected will be tasked with raising awareness about the PMI among seniors, Hispanics and Latinos, African Americans, and the LGBTQ community, as well as complement the program's other outreach efforts. To support their efforts, these groups will receive a combined $1.7 million in funding from the NIH this fiscal year.

The community partners include FiftyForward, which will share information about All of Us at affiliated lifelong learning centers and through home-based services to reach rural, economically disadvantaged, and older adult populations; the National Alliance for Hispanic Health, which will launch bilingual national and local initiatives to promote All of Us in Hispanic communities and work to overcome potential challenges to participation; the Delta Research and Educational Foundation, which will work with Delta Sigma Theta Sorority and the National Council of Negro Women to promote the need for inclusive research to reduce health disparities affecting African Americans; and the San Francisco General Hospital Foundation, which will form a national network to engage sexual and gender minorities across the country in All of Us.

"Medical breakthroughs have traditionally been based on findings from a limited portion of the US population," Dara Richardson-Heron, chief engagement officer for All of Us, said in a statement. "Our hope is for future research to include all of us so that future health care can be more tailored to our individual differences. We're excited to have the support of these community organizations to help drive our mission and improve the health of all communities."
