UAB is Studying Black and African American Connections to Parkinson's Disease - Your Help is Needed!


The Global Parkinson’s Genetics Program is hosting a study that will help researchers understand what Parkinson’s disease looks like for Black and African American communities. You can participate in BLAAC PD at UAB.


The University of Alabama at Birmingham is seeking healthy controls for an observational study to help researchers understand what Parkinson’s disease looks like for Black and African American communities. Black and African American people are valuable partners in research by helping us learn more about what causes disease or protects health in this community.


WHAT IS GENETIC RESEARCH? Research helps answer questions about health and disease. Studying genes can help us learn more about diseases and develop treatments.


WHAT DO I NEED TO KNOW? Participation involves a one-time donation of saliva or blood. The visit will take less than 15 minutes and information is kept private and secure. Participants will be compensated $25 for their time.


HOW CAN YOU HELP? Black and African American people are valuable partners in research. Joining a study can help us learn more about what causes disease or protects health in your community.


WHY IS PARKINSON’S RESEARCH IMPORTANT? The number of people with Parkinson’s disease is growing. This research is part of a global project to better understand how genes cause Parkinson’s and impact the disease.
