Become a Research Participant

If you would like to be considered for a study at the Autonomic Dysfunction Center we ask that you completely fill out the Autonomic Dysfunction Screening Questionnaire regarding your symptoms.  It is very important that you include the information regarding all of your current medications.  Your records cannot be properly evaluated without the requested blood pressure and heart rate determinations.  You can fax or mail this in to the address below. Please send only copies. We will not be able to return any records to you.
