STUDY BASICS

Do you experience occasional “senior moments” with your memory? Are you an African American man or woman who is at least 60 years old? Do you have a family member or close friend who can accompany you on study visits? If so, you may be able to participate in a research study to help identify memory problems at the earliest stages of Alzheimer’s disease.


STUDY PURPOSE

The purpose of this research study is to help researchers understand how concerns about mild memory changes may or may not relate to the future development of Alzheimer’s disease.


COULD THIS STUDY BE RIGHT FOR YOU?
  • Age 60 and up
  • African American
  • Have a family member or close friend who knows you well and is willing to attend clinic visits and answer questions about your memory and functioning

WHAT PARTICIPANTS CAN EXPECT

The initial evaluation takes about 4 hours and includes a physical exam, blood draw, a review of your medications, and paper and pencil memory testing. Participants will return each year for a 2-4 hour visit.
