SCARSDALE, N.Y. -- Scarsdale Medical Group Partners in partnership with Mercy College is recruiting volunteers to participate in a Senior Driver Safety research project.

The goal of this study is to develop a tool for physicians to screen for potential driving concerns in seniors.

Volunteers will be assessed on their vision, movement and thinking skills using paper and pencil tasks, a short walk down a hallway and a computer task.

Interested participants must be current drivers ages 65 and older, must register as a Scarsdale Medical Group patient and schedule a visit with a physician prior to the assessment appointment.

Existing patients need not schedule an appointment if they have been seen by their primary care physician within the last three months.

“The study is designed to create a screening tool to identify drivers that may not be safe behind the wheel,” says Scarsdale Medical Group physician Dr. Kenneth Croen.

To learn more or to volunteer, call (914)-723-8100 for an appointment.
