Participants of a study examining Wilmington’s west side can earn up to $75.

Volunteers of a study seeking to learn about the relationship between health, opportunity and physical violence on Wilmington’s west side can make up to $75 for participating in an exam this weekend.

“Volunteers will be asked to complete a survey, be interviewed and take a five-minute blood pressure test,” said Yasser Payne, an associate professor of black American studies at the University of Delaware and one of the study organizers. “No incriminating information will be asked of research volunteers.”

The study will help organize an action or activism agenda – this may include a health festival, street art exhibition and a street outreach campaign to not only bring attention to violence and structural opportunity, but also to educate residents about the prevalence of “food deserts,” hypertension, diabetes and exercise, as well as dental and health care.

The study will take place on the first floor of the William “Hicks” Anderson Community Center, at 501 N. Madison St., Wilmington, on Friday from 3 to 10 p.m. and Saturday from noon to 4 p.m.
