With the new year often comes new year’s resolutions.

If you’ve resolved to help make the world a better place in 2016, consider participating in medical research.

An informational meeting about participating in medical research at the Sanders-Brown Center on Aging will take place from 2-4 p.m., Jan. 25 at the DoubleTree Guest Suites, 2601 Richmond Road, Lexington.

A brief presentation about research participation opportunities will be made. Then, study coordinators will be available for questions and answers.

Most of the research studies are for people aged 65 and older.

The event is free, parking is free and there will be light refreshments.
