Warm Yourself This Winter-Volunteer

Thursday, December 28th, 2017

Studies have shown people feel better when they volunteer!
It’s that intangible, warm fuzzy feeling you can’t quite pinpoint, but you know there’s a little more of a spring in your step when you do something nice for others.

Winter is not always an easy time for people. The days are shorter, darkness sets in sooner (although we’ve passed the shortest day of the year), and some people find themselves becoming quite glum.  Have you ever though about getting out and about this winter by volunteering for research?

Coastal Connecticut Research needs volunteers!  Are you a person who wants to help others through research?  Then give us a call and learn about the clinical research studies we are conducting.  (860) 443-4567. We’d love to hear from you!  Help others through research and help cure those “winter blahs” in the process!

Clinical Research Trials in New London

Tuesday, November 29th, 2016

Coastal Connecticut research, located at 342 Montauk Avenue in New London, CT, is a health care facility specializing in clinical research trials. There is no cost to participate in a clinical research study, no insurance is needed, and reimbursement is available for time and travel.  Dr. Robert M. Spitz is the site’s founder and serves as Medical Director. Diane Palmer, RN, serves at the Site Administrator.

Currently, Coastal Connecticut Research is enrolling volunteers for an observational Alzheimer’s study and a study regarding Overactive Bladder in women 65 and older.   Those who wish to participate in the Alzheimer’s study must be men and women under the age of 90 who have a recent diagnosis of memory loss or are living in the early stages of memory loss.  The Overactive Bladder (OAB) study is seeking women who are 65 or older, and are living with urinary frequency and urge incontinence.  Those who would like to learn more about these current studies, and future studies,  can contact a member of the CCRstudies team at (860)443-4567 or email


Become a Research Volunteer!

Thursday, August 4th, 2016

Participation in a clinical research study is completely voluntary. Much like giving blood, those who volunteer for research are looking for a way to help others. In addition, study volunteers are closely monitored for safety by the study nurses and study physicians in order to rule out any underlying conditions that may be causing their symptoms. Study volunteers are thoroughly evaluated. Depending on the study, no cost research tests may include mammograms, pap smears, MRI’s, neurological testing, memory screening and ADHD assessments. Early detection is often the best treatment, and the research team will provide each patient with a thorough evaluation and assessment. Many patients have noted they have had the most thorough checkups of their life while participating in research. On occasion, volunteers will learn of a condition they are living with which previously had gone undetected.

There is no cost to participate as a volunteer in a research study. In addition, there is no cost for the study product, and no insurance is needed. Reimbursement is available for time and travel. Contact a member of the CCRstudies team at (860)443-4567.
