Title: A Trip Down Memory Lane: A Memory Screening Program Evaluation
Developed under the guidance of Dr. Nicole Rushing , Psychology

The current project is an evaluation of two memory screening events held in community-based settings in rural North Carolina in November 2017. The goals of the memory screening events are to screen and identify individuals with cognitive impairments within the community. The current program evaluation employs an inventory design and evaluates fidelity, reach, patient satisfaction, recruitment, and effectiveness. Data are gathered from a participant survey at the initial screening, screening test (Brief Alzheimer’s Screen), follow-up staff interviews, and participant follow-up survey. Results are used to evaluate objectives and modify the protocol for future screening events.
