Study seeks African American adults Feb. 23 for Alzheimer’s disease storytelling research

Vanderbilt University’s RASR Laboratory in the Department of Chemistry is collaborating with researchers at the University of Pittsburgh and Vanderbilt University Medical Center to understand how storytelling may be used to attract individuals from diverse backgrounds to participate in Alzheimer’s disease research.

We are seeking African American individuals, age 40 and older, who reside in Nashville and the surrounding communities to participate in a one-time, two-hour focus group on Wednesday, Feb. 23, from 6 to 8 p.m. to review short videos and materials and provide feedback.

Participants who complete the focus group study will receive a $50 Amazon gift card.

Those interested in participating in this study must complete a brief survey to determine if they qualify. The survey can be accessed via the QR code on the study flyer below, or you may contact 615-343-6679 or email
