 What happens at an information meeting?


Information meetings consist of a short presentation (about 30 minutes), which will outline the motivation for the study, what is required of study participants, and how you can become a participant. You will be given a copy of the presentation, on which you may take notes. At any time during the presentation, you may stop the presenter to ask for clarification if you have any questions.


After the presentation, if you determine that you are interested and think you meet the criteria to be a participant, we will give you a consent form, study application, and health history questionnaire to fill out. We will give you a copy of the consent form for your records. We will then ask you to sign up for your initial and follow-up screening visits.


Why do I have to go to the information meeting?


You must attend an information meeting if you wish to participate in one of our studies.
