Healthy Aging with a Disability Study

What is the Healthy Aging with a Disability Study?

The University of Michigan - Flint, Department of Public Health and the University of Michigan Rehabilitation Research Training Center (UM IDEAL RRTC) invite you to participate in a research study on Healthy Aging with a Disability. Your participation in this project will allow us to better understand the needs of the community and the connection between health and access to community services and supports for adults with physical disabilities and / or mobility problems. The study has been approved by the University of Michigan Institutional Review Board (HUM00163156).

Who can participate?

You may be eligible to participate if you are:

  1. At least 18 years old
  2. Have had difficulty walking for more than 5 years
  3. Live in the state of Michigan in the greater Detroit or Flint areas.

What would I need to do to participate?

Being part of this study consists of completing a one-time survey that is expected to take between 10 to 20 minutes. The survey can be completed either online or over the phone. We can also mail you a print copy of the survey for you to complete and return. If you decide to participate, you will receive $25 compensation for your time.
