DURHAM, N.C., Aug. 17, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- El Centro Hispano, Inc. and the National Alliance for Hispanic Health will host a Back to School Fair on Tuesday, August 21st. A special guest during the fair is the National Institutes of Health's All of Us Journey. The traveling, hands-on exhibit raises awareness about the All of Us Research Program—an ambitious effort to gather data from 1 million or more people living in the United States to accelerate research and improve health.

"There is a lack of representation of the Hispanic community in the United States clinical studies that seek to learn more about different diseases and treatments and improve the health of our communities," says Pilar Rocha-Goldberg, President and CEO of El Centro Hispano. "Therefore, the All of Us program represents an opportunity to improve access to clinical information for the diverse Hispanic population residing in the U.S., so they can receive better services. We look forward to the All of Us Journey visit in Durham to contribute to the health improvement of the Hispanic community."

"All of Us is an essential part of the future of health in the United States," said Dr. Jane L. Delgado, President and CEO of the National Alliance for Hispanic Health, the nation's leading Hispanic health advocacy group. "This research program will bring together communities throughout the United States to drive new discoveries, which may lead to earlier disease identification, more precise treatment solutions and better health outcomes for all in the future."

When: Tuesday, August 21st from 2pm to 6pm 
Where: Lakewood Shopping Center – 2000 Chapel Hill Rd., Durham, NC 27707
