Did you know that <1% o research funded by the National Institutes of Health focused on Asian Americans, even though Asian Americans constitute more than 7% of the US population? 

CARE stands for the Collaborative Approach for Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders research and Education. The AAPI community is the fastest-growing population in the US. CARE is a research registry specifically designed to increase AAPI participation and representation in research.

As a CARE participant, you may be contacted to participate in research related to Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Dementia (ADRD), aging, caregiving, and other health-related studies. You will receive e-newsletters regularly and are invited to participate in events and activities that may be relevant to you. 

Please consider joining CARE! This is an opportunity for South Asians to participate in important research that may affect us, our parents, children, and grandchildren. 

We have also recently launched a student ambassador program to promote CARE. We welcome high school and college students to sign up for our CARE Ambassador program to help reduce the gap in research participation in AAPI communities.
