Heaven Help Me: How People Use Religion to Cope with Parkinson's

A new research study has been launched that is gathering insights about how Parkinson’s can impact religious cognition. This study measures how you use faith and religion to cope with Parkinson’s.

There is a hypothesis that there is a higher likelihood to have a disconnection to spiritual and religious connections for neurodegenerative conditions like Parkinson’s. All faith and value systems are encouraged to participate.

You may participate in this research if you have been diagnosed with Parkinson’s, are over the age of 18, reside in the United States and speak and read English. Everything can be done online or by phone and participants will receive $150 for participating.

The activities for this two-year study occurs only twice. The first activity will include a 20-minute consent and screening with a survey and interview each taking approximately one hour. One 10-minute follow-up phone call will also be required. Additionally, there will be 3 or 4 five-minute check-ins over the course of two years.
