Abstract

Depression is projected to become the leading cause of disability and the second leading contributor to the global burden of disease in approximately 10. years. Few studies have explored the signs and symptoms of depression experienced by older African American men. Therefore, a pilot study was developed with the goal of addressing this gap in knowledge. Despite a variety of recruitment strategies, the study yielded no participants after 9. months of effort. Lessons learned from the recruitment efforts and other researchers' successful techniques and strategies are discussed.
