Presentation by Dr. Tom Meuser detailing the Legacy Scholars Program, a new resource created to support applied human subject research. The Legacy Scholars Program (LSP) is a research registry, a general longitudinal study of factors associated with health and well-being, and a lifelong learning and service hub—all in one. Adults, 55+ years, volunteer as Scholars, complete an annual survey, and support research at UNE. Data from the annual survey is intended to support research training through exploratory analyses. The LSP is a signature program of the Center for Excellence in Aging and Health (CEAH), now in its second year at UNE. The CEAH is developing additional data resources through the Maine Syracuse Longitudinal Study (MSLS), housed at the University of Maine, and the Rockland Adult Longitudinal Study through the Nathan Kline Institute in New York. Dr. Meuser will review these resources and see feedback on draft plans to offer access to students and faculty in UNE’s College of Osteopathic Medicine (COM) starting in the Spring 2020 term.
