NBNA Education Session

A Discussion on the All of Us Research Program

The Miami Chapter-Black Nurses Association (Miami-BNA) was honored to hold (2) two Education Sessions for the “All of Us” Research Program. The attendees at the first session held on June 23, 2018 included nursing students, nursing professionals across the degree spectrum, and community members. The second session held on June 25, 2018, was primarily directed toward community health nursing students. There was considerable discussion on the issue of trust
among African Americans due to past wrongs; such as the “Tuskegee Experiment”. Education regarding the past; explanation of research regulations that emerged from this unethical past experience; and education on the impact of minority underrepresentation in medical research is necessary to help the community make informed decisions, when considering participation in “All of Us”. A resounding comment was that these sessions should just be the beginning of more to come.
