    Pittsburgh Area Retirees Needed


      Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University are looking for people in the Pittsburgh area who have retired within the last 6 months or who are about to retire to participate in a psychology study.

      The purpose of this study is to understand thoughts and feelings that couples commonly experience while on the path to retirement. To participate in the study, you must be 55 years of age or older, married, and either you or your spouse must have retired within the last 6 months or be about to retire.  Participation requires two initial sessions, each of which will last no longer than 2 hours, and you will receive $80 as a couple for participating! 

      This research is being funded by the National Institute on Aging and has been approved by the Carnegie Mellon University Institutional Review Board. 

      If you have any questions about the study or if you are interested in participating, please contact Jennifer Tomlinson at jennifer.tomlinson@cmu.edu or (412)268-4193.

      Thank you,

      Jennifer Tomlinson, Ph.D.
