Dear Senior,

If you are experiencing forgetfulness or memory issues, we are offering free “Memory Screening”, which involves a simple test to help us determine if your memory problems may be something that needs to be addressed clinically.  If eligible, you will be invited to participate in one of our research studies.

Please, be aware that, even if you are eligible, your participation in any research study is completely voluntary. There will be no consequences to you what-so-ever if you choose not to participate, and your regular medical care will not be affected by that choice.

Clinical trials are vital in the advancement of better medicines to treat cognitive impairment (memory loss). Your participation may have a positive impact on this advancement and improve outcomes for those who may develop memory loss.

In order to determine your eligibility or to know more about these studies, please contact the research at 954-366-0277.

Please feel free to call and make an appointment today.

Respectfully yours,

The Physicians and the Infinity Clinical Research Team in Hollywood, Florida
