Here's another interesting (to me, at least) update about the "All of Us" study (a terrible name, IMO). https://fortune.com/2019/08/21/this-company-will-provide-genetic-counseling-for-a-million-person-nih-study/

I joined this recently, and I hope many of us on this forum will also join. It's free, and thus far the time required of me has been minimal.

"The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has an official genetic counseling partner for its ambitious, million-person All of Us research program: Color Genomics, a DNA testing and genomic counseling specialist."

"All of Us officially began recruiting participants in May 2018. The NIH recently provided an update on the program: As of July 2019, 230,000 participants had enrolled, and another 40,000 had registered online. The NIH aims to recruit the full million by 2024".
