Are older adults in your community eager to have opportunities for engagement during the COVID pandemic?

We are currently recruiting research participants for a virtual research study.  Our purpose is to improve a preference assessment for older adults through the use of supplemental pictures.  We are seeking adults over the age of 65 years to offer their opinions on the pictures we have chosen for the preference assessment. 

To participate adults should be over at least 65 years of age, speak American English as their primary language, have access to a computer and the internet, and allow their responses to be audio and video recorded.  They will also complete a brief hearing, vision, communication, and cognitive screening.  Total time to complete the project is about 2 hours but sessions can be completed over multiple days.
