Nursing Homes Info Wanted For Ongoing Study

We are always grateful for the enthusiastic response of our readers to INSIDE MS. In the Winter '90 issue, we asked those with a mild case of MS to provide information for a study on long-term care insurance being conducted by Dr. Martin Jones, a Society grantee. Over 1,100 people--from coast to coast and from all walks of life--respondend to that one announcement.

Dr. Jones would now like your help in another aspect of his study which pertains to the experience of people in all stages of MS who have entered nursing homes. If you know of anyone who is in a home, for any reason, who would be willing to complete a brief questionnaire (possibly with help from a family member) please contact Dr. Martin Jones, P.O. Box 2921, Gaithersburg, Maryland 20886-2921. Dr. Jones states that all participants will receive results from him when the study is completed. Informtion will be treated confidentially.

Although the Society assumes no responsibility for the conduct or outcome of this research, we have funded the study because it addresses an important issue affecting many people with MS.
