Through a collaborative partnership between Mather and Chautauqua Institution, Chautauquans are offered a unique opportunity to add their voice to future research that will explore people’s influences, behaviors, and attitudes.
Chautauquans are invited to join the new Mather Institute Research Panel. This panel, made up of members from across the United States, will serve as the foundation for future Institute studies on wellness and aging well topics. Members of the panel will receive invitations to participate in several surveys a year, contributing insights and experiences on such topics as positive aging, hope, solitude, ageism, resilience, gratitude, wellness and motivators of healthy behaviors.
Staffed by researchers, Mather Institute is an award-winning resource for applied research and information about wellness, aging, and innovations in aging services. The Institute is part of Mather, a not-for-profit organization founded in 1941 that is dedicated to creating ways to age well.
The first survey will open in late September. Each survey will be online and is estimated to take 10 to 30 minutes to complete. Survey participants will receive a summary of the research findings when they become available.
Mather Institute will use the panel’s responses to explore fresh insights into the experiences of individuals during these unprecedented times.
Anyone who is at least 18 years old is welcome to join the Mather Institute Research Panel. To join, simply complete a demographic online survey here. Answers on this initial survey will be used for future research in which panel members can participate. Please note that Mather Institute takes personal privacy very seriously. The information shared will be confidential and none of the information you provide will be attributed to individual survey-takers.
