Tips for Talking with Family Members About Research Participation (MARS)

A one-page handout from the Rush Alzheimer’s Disease Center provides information for participants to share with family members about their participation in the Minority Aging Research Study (MARS) Organ Donation Program. The handout includes information on MARS, which is open to African Americans 65 years old or older; why donation is important; what to do at the time of death; and the process, including transportation, what will be removed, length of the procedure, and the follow-up report that family members will receive 12 to 24 months later.
