Registry for Remembrance
The Registry for Remembrance is a special community and academic partnership to educate and recruit African Americans for long term research participation at the Emory Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center (ADRC).
As a Registry for Remembrance volunteer, you will participate in a research study on memory. You will be informed of new research studies at the ADRC and have an opportunity to participate in research that focuses on understanding conditions that affect memory and thinking. You will also be on our mailing list to receive the ADRC’s bi-annual newsletter to be informed of educational events.
The Registry for Remembrance (RfR) is an established community and academic partnership to better inform individuals, particularly minority elders, about cognitive disorders and the importance of clinical research participation to stop, slow or prevent Alzheimer’s disease. Focus groups with community members held from 2009—2010 revealed that more information about healthy aging, memory preservation, dementia and caregiving support was needed. With your input, the Emory ADRC and the Center for Health in Aging partnered with the RfR to create the Carter Center Forums. Your forum participation and subsequent study enrollment have resulted in a broader diversity of informed research volunteers. We invite your continued support by participating in the 12th Brain Health Forum on Tuesday, October 11, 2016 at the Carter Presidential Center. Visit www.12thforum.eventbrite.com to register. We will share relevant information about new treatment strategies to prevent memory loss and dementia. This forum will bring together more than 400 attendees and exhibitors to draw on the latest trends and discoveries in Alzheimer’s prevention. Despite the increase in emerging treatments and early detection, we still have challenges with Alzheimer’s disease.
