Outreach and Engagement

In the field of medicine, it's crucial to identify how a disease uniquely impacts groups and individuals in different ways. The Outreach and Engagement Core at the Indiana Alzheimer's Disease Research Center (IADRC) develops relationships with community members and local organizations so that center research reflects the diverse community it supports. 

Participate in research

The IADRC relies on the involvement of participants to further its advancement of research in Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. To learn how to begin, interested participants must submit a referral form.
