The Healthier Black Elders Center not only provides resources for today but it lays the foundation for reliable research for tomorrow. The HBEC invites everyone interested in its mission to join its pool of partners willing to consider participating in future research projects. Health disparities still exist between African Americans and other ethnic groups, so more research is needed to determine causes and solutions. A pool of potential participants is critical for this research.
At the present time HBEC is trying to recruit African American men and women aged 55 and older who are willing to participate in noninvasive research.
The HBEC Participant Resource Pool has an Oversight Committee which consist of the HBEC Committee Advisory Board member. This board manages access to the pool and use of the database. The committee is compromised of ten individuals whom are from the community. These individuals will ensure that the safety and protection of the participants and the quality and integrity of the research is maintained.
To be a participant in our HBEC Participant Resource Pool, please contact: Patricia Rencher, Community Education Coordinator at 313.664.2626 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
