Subject Opportunities


Mindfulness Meditation in Chronic Stress

Principal Investigator: Barry Oken, MD

The OHSU Neurology department is looking for individuals to participate in a stress intervention study. The study aims to see if a mind-body intervention called Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) or an education class can reduce stress. Participants must be 50-85 years old, willing to be randomized into the interventions (meditation or education class), and willing to attend three in-person assessments in addition to the classes.
