The All Our Voices toolkit was created in partnership between the Network of the National Library of Medicine (NNLM) and StoryCorps as part of NNLM’s national initiative to support awareness of the All of Us Research Program (All of Us). In partnership, StoryCorps and NNLM support the power of libraries in their role as disseminators of health information and offer these tools to preserve the rich diversity of health experiences through the stories of people from across the United States.
Conversations about health and wellness are a meaningful way to build connection, support, and understanding among community and family—whether the conversation is recorded or not. Considering the lack of diverse representation in recorded history and in medical research, the All Our Voices toolkit aims to expand the conversation and inspire people to tell their health and wellness stories, in their own voices.
We hope you’ll use the resources in this toolkit to create a culture of listening and sharing around health and wellness topics in your community.
