EAST BRUNSWICK – Middlesex County residents have an opportunity to visit an exhibit that focuses on health.

Called “All Of Us,” the National Institutes of Health’s travelling exhibit looks at precision medicine. It will be at the East Brunswick library on May 4 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The exhibit also provides an opportunity to learn more about the future of medicine through interactive displays and a virtual reality experience.

There will also be family-friendly activities, prizes, a food truck and a DJ.

The travelling exhibit is meant to engage communities and raise awareness about the All of Us Research Program — an effort to compile health data from more than 1 million people with the goal to improve health and accelerating research.

According to the National Institutes of Health website about the program, “Researchers will use data from the program to learn more about how individual differences in lifestyles, environment, and biological makeup can influence health and disease.”

The library is located at 2 Jean Walling Civic Center.
