What does participation involve?

Our study staff will work with you to set up an appointment time that fits your schedule. The approximately 2 ½ hour exam will include:

  • Testing your senses (hearing, vision, smell), memory and brain function
  • Updating your general health information
  • Given consent, collecting blood samples to conduct routine clinical health blood tests and test for new markers of inflammation, liver and kidney and brain health
  • Participants can receive a written report with their study results approximately 6 weeks after their examination and are personally made aware of any clinically significant findings from the evaluations.
