We respect the wishes of members of our community that do not wish to be enrolled in the ROC research clinical trials. If community members do not want to participate in these research trials, they can request to Opt-Out.  We offer a silicone bracelet with the words “Opt-out of ROC Research” engraved on it. Community members will have to wear this bracelet during the time these studies are being conducted beginning now – through the year 2016.

Even if someone opts out, there is no guarantee that under emergency circumstances the bracelet will be attached to the person being cared for by the EMS agency.  The individual might still be enrolled in the study. In the unlikely event they are enrolled after they have requested not to be enrolled; we will not use any of the information collected, and all information pertaining to the enrollment will be destroyed.



Two Ways to get your Opt-Out of the ROC Research material.


      • Stop by the ROC research office and pick up an Opt-Out wrist band . Our office is located in the Kracke Building on the Campus of UAB, room 532.  The address is 1922 7th Avenue South Birmingham, Alabama.  Click Here for Mapquest Directions
