Have you or a family member been diagnosed with dementia, such as Alzheimer’s Disease or Lewy Body Dementia?
Are you over 18 years old?
If you answered yes to the questions above, you may be eligible to participate in a research study.
Researchers from Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland Clinic, MetroHealth, University Hospitals and the Louis Stokes Cleveland VA Medical Center have joined together to form The Cleveland Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center (CADRC) which aims to study the different forms of dementia in the hope that learning more about the disease can lead to new forms of treating, and eventually curing, Alzheimer’s and related disorders.
Study participants will take part in cognitive testing, blood draws, physical exams, imaging scans, and other selective procedures. Follow up visits will occur annually. Compensation for completed study visits will be provided.
