The RISE (Research Inclusion Supports Equity) Registry

Are you LGBTQIA+, 18 and older, and caring for someone with memory loss or a memory loss diagnosis?

RISE is a research study being conducted by Emory University, the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, and the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.

The RISE study includes a research registry created to help ensure the LGBTQIA+ community is represented in Alzheimer’s and related research.

The registry is for LGBTQIA+ people 18 and older who:

  • Have memory concerns or a memory loss diagnosis such as Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia
  • Are helping care for someone with memory loss or a memory loss diagnosis

Registrants can receive:

  • Notice of research opportunities related to aging or caregiving in their area, and nationally
  • Opportunities to participate in educational and advocacy events either online or in-person
  • Invites to participate in additional questionnaires, interviews, or focus groups related to aging and the LGBTQIA+ population
  • LGBTQIA+ friendly resources for adults with memory concerns and LGBTQIA+ caregivers
