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
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
