Outreach and Engagement Core

Through communication with the general public, healthcare professionals and service providers, the Outreach, Recruitment and Engagement Core (ORE) assists the Clinical Core with the recruitment of a clinical population. This Core facilitates the recruitment of not only symptomatic patients, but also asymptomatic family members. This Core will offer ongoing programs to all people enrolled in the ADRC cohort.

Educational services are provided to the public through a long-standing collaboration with the Alzheimer’s Association, Connecticut Chapter. A key role is to remove barriers to minority research participation and to extend education programs to a racially and ethnically diverse audience.

For more information on programs offered by the ADRC, please call 203-785-5526.
