Who is the research team looking for?
African American/Black adults age 40 and older.
What will they be asked to do?
• Review and judge possible health studies through a 10 minute web-based survey.
• Some will also be asked to do an interview while they go through the survey.
It’s the job of scientists to create research so that people feel welcome. This team wants to hear directly from African American/Black adults to help future researchers create studies that work for everyone.
Susan Racine Passmore, PhD, is the lead investigator on this project. Her scholarly work focuses upon the social construction of trust and the practical application of this knowledge to create innovative approaches for building researcher “trustworthiness.” Learn more.
