LGBTQIA+ & non-LGBTQIA+ Caregivers Needed: Parkinson’s Research

Are you 18+ and a caregiver for someone living with Parkinson’s?

The UNLV School of Public Health and the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research just launched an exciting research study – and we need your help! Parkinson’s Research with Inclusion, Diversity, and Equity (“PRIDE”) explores the health and health care needs of people living with Parkinson’s disease.

Little is known about the LGBTQIA+ community because questions about us are not often asked in research. This one time, 45-minute phone study measures the unique needs and struggles of LGBTQIA+ individuals with Parkinson’s and their caregivers. It will answer some of the following questions: What problems do LGBTQIA+ individuals with Parkinson’s disease experience when using health care services? Would the community benefit from additional support and services? How do LGBTQIA+ people find the services they need?

Participation is voluntary and all information will be kept private. Participants will receive a $25 Visa E-gift card.

All questions can be directed to primary investigator Jason Flatt, PhD at 702-895-5586 or Jason.Flatt@unlv.edu. Please note that we unfortunately cannot accept Google phone numbers.
