The Research and Training Center on Disability in Rural Communities has conducted high quality research and training for over 25 years and is a leader in creating evidence-based solutions to rural problems experienced by people with disabilities. This research is not possible without the participation of rural community members in our research studies that address diverse topics within the areas of Health and Wellness, Community Participation and Independent Living, and Employment and Vocational Rehabilitation.
Research Participants are rural community members who wish to serve an essential role in advancing rural disability research. Research Participants have opportunities to inform research on multiple levels through various projects in the areas of Health and Wellness, Employment and Vocational Rehabilitation, and Community Participation and Independent Living. Duration of participation is dependent on project, as are stipends or other incentives.
