North Texas Participant Registry Project (NRP)

This aims to involve all NorTex clinics to enroll patients into the NRP.  This voluntary project will have front desk personnel hand out 3x5 cards to all patients check in in for their appointments.  This card will have detailed information about the project on one side of the card and collect demographic and medical histories on the other side.  Patients will then give the cards back to the front desk personnel if they decide to participate.  This information will provide NorTex researchers the ability to contact potentially eligible participants for future projects.  We hope to grow this database to 10,000 in the first several years.
