The Participant’s Voice

The ADAPTABLE Study is building a community where participants, researchers, and clinicians actively engage one another and partner together to improve cardiovascular health. Participants receive a quarterly newsletter with updates about the study and insights into research team members. There is also an opportunity for participants to share why they joined the ADAPTABLE Study and why cardiovascular research is important to them. This page is dedicated to these participants and their voice.
