LSU Pennington Biomedical Research Center is looking for elderly African Americans to participate in a short research project studying cognitive impairment and Alzheimer’s disease.
The PAACE research study will evaluate if a physical activity program, tailored to elderly African Americans, can help improve brain function in areas such as attention and memory in an effort to reduce the risk of developing dementia, such as Alzheimer’s disease.
PAACE study participants will visit the Pennington Biomedical Outpatient Clinic for an orientation visit prior to enrolling in the study.
Once enrolled, participants will take part in a 12-week physical activity program or a 12- week successful aging program. Each 12-week program will take place in a community setting.
NUMBER OF VISITS
Participants will be compensated up to $100 for the completion of this study.
If you are interested in volunteering for this research study, call 225-763-3000 or email email@example.com.
