REACT! Study

Announcement: The REACT! Study is not currently enrolling participants at the University of Pennsylvania.

The Rhythm Experience and Africana Culture Trial (REACT!)

The Rhythm Experience and Africana Culture Trial (REACT!) was an Alzheimer’s Association-funded research study conducted at the University of Pennsylvania and the University of Pittsburgh (Pittsburgh). This research study compared two activities, African Dance and an Education/Discussion group, which might be beneficial for older African Americans (ages 60-80). The study examined whether brain health, fitness levels or quality of life improved as a result of participating in these activities three times per week for six months.
