Diversity of Clinical Trial Researchers and Patients

A dialogue on the dual opportunities of clinical trial diversity to impact health disparities and/or improve minority leadership in scientific research. Topics include the importance of diversity in finding treatments for unsolved diseases, health disparities and the role of repurposed therapies in addressing them; community organizations’ role in clinical research diversity; and the need to reduce the NIH funding gap for underrepresented racial/ethnic minority researchers. Speakers will provide the perspectives of industry, research, clinicians, community organizations and the patient voice.

During the event, there will be a showcase of our ongoing clinical trials within our Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Community, including projects impacting health disparities and led by racial/ethnic minority and underserved scientists.
