The Sealy Center on Aging Volunteer Registry
Senior volunteers (age 55 and over) are being invited to join the UTMB Center on Aging Volunteer Registry. The Registry is a list of people who have volunteered to take part in research studies on the health and well-being of older persons. By becoming a participant in aging research you will have a chance to learn more about your own health, receive a newsletter focusing on senior health issues, and participate in studies that are interesting to you. For more information please see Ten of the Most Commonly Asked Questions.
UTMB faculty with a special interest in aging (in areas such as exercise, nutrition, and memory function) use the Registry to recruit subjects for their studies. From time to time a UTMB investigator might send you information about an opportunity to participate in a study. You are never under any obligation to participate in a study. Information for Research Investigators.
Some studies may pay for transportation and/or participation.
