Participate in Research

Participation in a research project is a personal decision. Before you participate, be sure to read the Informed Consent, which is a document that describes the nature of the project, risks and benefits to you. In addition, it is helpful to ask questions to make sure you understand every aspect. If you are interested in a project, you can directly contact the study research staff and ask questions.
