Research is integral to help the scientific and medical community:
However, in order to successfully conduct clinical research, older adults must volunteer to participate in studies. To understand how the brain changes as we age, we need to study individuals with no memory loss in addition to individuals who have memory complaints, mild cognitive impairment, or Alzheimer’s disease.
We welcome all older adults to join our studies and research activities. Please contact our Recruitment Coordinator, Stephanie Mayers, to learn more:

What are the benefits of participating in clinical research?
How do you join a study?
If you are 55 years of age or older then you may be eligible to join one of our research studies. Our projects seek older adults who have memory problems as well as older adults without any memory problems or complaints. Some studies require only one visit while other studies require multiple visits over time. To learn more about our research opportunities, please contact our Outreach & Recruitment Coordinator, Stephanie Mayers, directly by phone (615-875-3175) or email (email@example.com).
Is there an alternative way to contribute?
Often we hear from older adults that their schedules or personal demands prevent them from getting involved in one of our studies. If you do not have time to volunteer in one of our studies, you can still contribute to advance our program’s mission with a financial donation.
