For the last two years, the National Hispanic Council on Aging (NHCOA) has partnered with the National Institutes of Health to raise awareness about the All of Us Research Program (AoU). The All of Us Research Program is inviting one million people across the U.S. to help build one of the most diverse health databases in history. NHCOA’s role in the AoU program is to raise awareness about health research and the program itself. In an effort to do that, we are hosting a webinar entitled, “Lessons from the Field: Conducting health research with hard to reach populations.” This webinar provided a space for researchers and other AoU partners to learn from community researchers who already engage hard to reach populations.
