Participates needed!!

Millions of people in the US suffer from heart failure, and living with it is not easy. Oregon State University College of Public Health and Human Sciences is looking for participants for a study on how people manage heart failure at home. We are interested in hearing about people’s experiences with heart failure to develop programs that can help them manage the condition at home. If you have been diagnosed with heart failure or take care of a family member with heart failure, you may qualify for the study. Participation involves a one hour interview that takes place at Center 50+. Participants receive a $50 Visa gift card for their time. If you would like to learn more about the study please contact Katie Anthony by phone at 310-748-9156 or by email at osuheartfailurestudy@gmail.com
