AoU Research Priorities Use Cases

How does participants’ health literacy (HL) level compare to national estimates and what is the role of HL in health outcomes?

Populations of limited health literacy have traditionally been underrepresented in genomic/genetic studies. We propose that All of Us participants complete brief baseline HL survey items as part of the Participant-Provided Information (PPI; The Basics). HL measures can be analyzed in comparison with national estimates and in conjunction with other All of Us measures (e.g., uptake on genetic testing, behavioral outcomes, interests in return of sequencing results).
