research study recruiters for African Americans


Since 2004, the Online Guide to Black Boston /  AboutBlackBostonOnline has been recruiting African American and Black people for research studies volunteer slots. We help researchers enroll a demographic they need. Our work to date has not advertised the “clinical research” type trial where patients are given drugs at their risk. The studies we have worked to date have not subjected participants to dangerous applications of medicine and devices.

Studies we have recruited for could be categorized as social, observational, psychological or  medical.  Some were oriented to parenting, marketing or religion. Patients who have been diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease, Alzheimer’s and Dementia were recruited to participate in disease management studies. We have performed recruitment campaigns for youth and adults with Asthma, Dyslexia, Depression, Alcohol, Weight Gain, and Exercise challenges.

The projects are run by local universities and Ph. D. research candidates.
