Did you know?
Bell’s Palsy affects approximately 40,000 Americans each year? The Foundation for Facial Recovery is looking for Bell’s Palsy patients with a family history of the condition to volunteer for a research study investigating this disease at a genetic level. Your participation would involve answering questions.
Our main objective is to find out why Bell’s Palsy affects different people in different ways. Some patients recover from this disease within a few weeks while others take months and years to recover. The positive genetic finding can help in designing personalized treatment that varies from patient to patient.
This volunteer study may apply to you or someone you know. If you’d like to participate or can help us in finding volunteers, please contact the study team with questions or to volunteer: firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
The study is taking place at the Foundation for Facial Recovery in Rockville, MD.
