Do you want to make a difference in the lives of future generations? Join the All of Us Research Program when the Education & Enrollment Center, a traveling hands-on exhibit, makes a three-week stop in Nashville to build awareness and increase engagement in an effort that may change and improve health outcomes in the future.

“We are thrilled to join the Hispanic Family Foundation and the Nashville Public Library to welcome the All of Us Education & Enrollment Center and our fellow All of Us national community partner, the National Alliance for Hispanic Health, to Nashville,” said FiftyForward Chief Program Officer Gretchen Funk. “This is an exciting opportunity for our collective community to come together to learn more about the All of Us Research Program through the mobile exhibit’s interactive activities. Our All of Us program ambassadors have shared their enthusiasm for this effort saying this may be the best legacy they can leave for future generations.”

All of Us is an unprecedented effort to gather genetic, biological, environmental, health and lifestyle data from one million or more volunteer participants living in the United States. The program’s ultimate goal is to accelerate research and improve health.

Funk added, “We are especially excited that enrolled participants from the Nashville area will be able to visit the Education & Enrollment Center to take the next step in All of Us participation and donate physical measurements and biosamples, a step which has not yet been possible in Nashville.”

“We are bringing the All of Us Research Program directly to people all across the country to continue our work to increase the inclusion of all communities in clinical and biomedical research. Through the Education & Enrollment Center traveling exhibit we will increase the participation of diverse communities in All of Us to help build the foundation for a new era of health care where medicine is tailored to each person,” said Dr. Jane L. Delgado, President and CEO of the National Alliance for Hispanic Health.

All of Us seeks to transform the relationship between researchers and participants, bringing them together as partners to inform the program’s directions, goals and responsible return of research information. One of those partners is the National Alliance for Hispanic Health which, through its Todos Juntos effort, is partnering with organizations across the country to provide information on All of Us and demonstrate the central role Hispanic communities can play to usher in the future of health.

All of Us aims to reflect the rich diversity of the U.S. to help ensure that each community is included in studies that lead to improved health for future generations. Participants will be able to access their own health information, summary data about the entire participant community, and information about studies and findings that come from All of Us.

Nashville’s community can visit the All of Us Education & Enrollment Center February 24 – March 13.

Tennessee Sports Hall of Fame to Induct Jeff Fisher

Former Tennessee Titans coach Jeff Fisher will be among the 2020 Tennessee Sports Hall of Fame inductees.

The announcement was made by the Tennessee Sports Hall of Fame on a Nashville radio station on Friday morning.

Fisher was hired as interim coach of the Houston Oilers in 1994 and came with the franchise to Tennessee when it moved to Nashville in 1997. He compiled a 142-120 record in 17 seasons with the organization before parting ways with the Titans after the 2010 campaign.

In that time, Fisher guided the Titans to the franchise’s lone Super Bowl appearance in the 1999 season when Tennessee went 13-3, dispensed with the Buffalo Bills on a play known as the “Music City Miracle” in the AFC Wild Card Round. The Titans then defeated Indianapolis in the division playoffs and Jacksonville in the AFC Championship Game before losing to the St. Louis Rams in Super Bowl XXXIV.

After Fisher left the Titans, he became the Rams coach in 2012 and spent five seasons before being let go in 2016.

A true legend in every sense of the word, Julie Andrews has entertained millions for more than half a century. Ms. Andrews shares her extraordinary experiences from her early days of vaudeville in England to the popular projects and work she continues to create today during a special event at Ryman Auditorium on June 24, 2020.

Opening with a beautiful video montage of her work, ‘An Evening of Conversation with Julie Andrews’ is a unique and unforgettable visit with one of the world’s most beloved icons. From the nanny we’d always wished for in Mary Poppins to mountain-top twirling nun-no-more Maria in The Sound of Music to a fabulous cross-dressing club crooner in Victor/Victoria, Julie Andrews has towered upon the big screen. On Broadway, she won hearts with her iconic portrayals in My Fair Lady and Camelot. What stories she has to share! And share them she will during this special evening!

Joining Ms. Andrews is her daughter and co-author, Emma Walton Hamilton, who will facilitate questions from the audience.

Julie Andrews will not be singing in this performance.

Guests purchasing premium seating in the first 10 rows will also receive a copy of Julie’s latest book, Homework, which will be available for pickup at the box office the day of the show.
