Diversity matters when it comes to mental health. Abundant statistics about how race, ethnicity, and sexual orientation affect mental health underscore the importance of diversifying research on mental health issues. Using data from the All of Us Research Program, researchers are conducting a variety of studies to better understand mental health disparities in diverse populations. Learn more about how the All of Us Research Program is addressing mental health issues through this webinar with Dr. Julia Moore Vogel.
You will also gain valuable insight into:

Julia Moore Vogel, PhD
Julia Moore Vogel, PhD is a Program Director at Scripps Research. She manages The Participant Center (TPC) for the NIH-funded All of Us Research Program. TPC is charged with recruiting and retaining 350,000 individuals that represent the diversity of the United States and aims to make it possible for interested individuals anywhere in the US to become active participants, for example by collaborating with numerous outreach partners to raise awareness, collecting biosamples nationwide, returning participants’ results and developing self-guided workflows that enable participants to join whenever is convenient for them. Participants’ information is shared with them and made available to researchers who aim to make medical breakthroughs. She is also using her two years of lived experience with Long COVID to study the effectiveness of wrist-worn wearable devices and educational materials in decreasing Long COVID symptom severity.
Prior to SRTI, Julia created, proposed, fundraised for, and implemented research and clinical genomics initiatives at the New York Genome Center and The Rockefeller University. She oversaw the proposal and execution of grants, including a $44M NIH Center for Common Disease Genomics in collaboration with over 20 scientific contributors across seven institutions. She also managed corporate partnerships, including one that assessed the relative value of several genomic assays for cancer patients. She has a BS in Mathematics from RPI, PhD in Computational Biology and Medicine from Cornell and MBA from Cornell.
