NADSA Highlights: Survey Says
It was a pleasure meeting so many of you at the NADSA 2018 Conference in Baltimore last month. It was inspiring and motivating to hear from so many providers who are interested in connecting their participants and families with Alzheimer’s research! That’s why we’d like to ask for your participation in a brief survey on the types of research Adult Day Services are most interested in. Thanks in advance for your input, as it will help direct the research opportunities we bring to the community.
Harris Poll: Research Matters
A new survey of 10,000 people across 10 countries reveals 62% are worried they may develop Alzheimer’s. Nearly the same percentage (60%) believe a cure will likely be developed in their lifetime, 91% believe medical research is the answer, and 79% said they’re willing to participate. And here’s where the mission and vision of our work at Recruitment Partners comes in: 75% of these willing participants have no idea how to get involved in medical research.

“All of Us” Program Focusing on Inclusivity
The National Institutes of Health’s million-patient research program, called All of Us, hinges on community engagement partners to recruit participants — especially those who have historically avoided such large-scale government-run research programs. Recently, program leaders announced a partnership with the Asian Health Coalition to reach Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians, and Pacific Islanders. Another partner, the National Alliance for Hispanic Health, just hosted a Spanish-language Facebook Live Q&A for potential participants about reasons to contribute biospecimens and survey information.
