ABOUT RISE 

RESEARCH INCLUSION SUPPORTS EQUITY

RISE is a research study being conducted by Emory University, the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, and the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. RISE stands for Research Inclusion Supports Equity.

The RISE study includes a research registry created to help ensure the LGBTQIA+ community is represented in Alzheimer’s research.

The registry is for LGBTQIA+ people 18 and older who:

  • Have memory concerns or a memory loss diagnosis such as Alzheimer's disease or a related dementia 

  • Are helping care for someone with memory loss or a memory loss diagnosis

WHY REGISTER?

 By registering, you’ll receive:

  • Notice of research opportunities related to aging or caregiving in your area, and nationally

  • Opportunities to participate in educational and advocacy events either online or in-person

  • Invites to participate in additional questionnaires, interviews or focus groups related to aging and the LGBTQIA+ population

  • LGBTQIA+ friendly resources for adults with memory concerns and LGBTQIA+ caregivers
