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.

    “As an African American female, I recognize the importance of researchers including a wider and more diverse population to ascertain better and more effective medical practices. Traditionally, most studies have captured data from white males and over time we are slowly learning that medicine affects people differently. This was the first time I’ve ever been asked to participate in a study thus given the chance, I had to agree!”
