Repost: Thank you to our Research Participants

Nov 19, 2021 | Dr. Melanie Chandler, HABIT FL Director | @drmelaniechandler



In this time of Thanksgiving, I thought it fitting to repost a thank you for all our research participants over the years.  I originally wrote this in 2018, so it is definitely time to extend the THANK YOU again!


In the HABIT Healthy Action to Benefit Independence & Thinking Program® we have always strived to provide the most evidenced based program to all of our participants.  That means, when we offer an intervention to you, it is because there is a proven, scientific basis to it.  Well, we could not do that if not for the hundreds of you over the years that have volunteered to provide us with information in our various research studies.

Thank you...

For filling out seemingly endless packets of questionnaires about how you feel, think, and respond to the various interventions we give.

For being willing to participate in a program where you only got part of the interventions and not others.

For coming back for all of the follow up visits and filling out those questionnaires again!

For driving 2 hours to have a brain scan....twice!

Because of you...

We now know things like ALWAYS give the MSS calendar training and ALWAYS offer Support Group.

We better know the value of each of our HABIT interventions, and learn more all the time about who benefits best from what.

We know that Quality of Life is what you value above all other outcomes.

We keep making this program better for those who have participated after you.


Please check out the Resource Page where we have placed the links to many of the publications that have resulted from your time dedicated to research!

We value all of you, and greatly appreciate your part in making the HABIT Healthy Action to Benefit Independence & Thinking Program® what it is today.
