MEMPHIS – The University of Tennessee Health Science Center in Memphis is seeking 200 minority participants for a study of aspirin.

The research will assess whether aspirin can not only prolong life but also promote a life free of physical disability and/or dementia for healthy, older people.

According to a news release from the center, aspirin may help older individuals live well longer by delaying the onset of illnesses.

Study coordinators are recruiting minorities of African-American, Asian or Latino descent.

The research is sponsored by the National Institute on Aging, a subsidiary of the National Institutes of Health.
