AoU Research Priorities Use Cases

What is the overall role of sports, which promote physical activity but can also contribute to injuries, in America’s health?

Sports play a unique role as a platform for physical activity, but can also increase the risk of injury. All of Us offers an opportunity to identify health benefits and risks of sports by population segment, sport, and level of play. A resulting "sports prescription for health" could be a powerful leap forward in improving health. Methods could include data on sports injuries, wearable technology, validated self-reports, and unique insights from All of Us. ACSM applauds this health innovation.
