Demystifying Clinical Trials: Engaging Patients and Communities of Color in Clinical Research
The MedTech Color Collaborative Community on Diversity and Inclusion in Medical Device Product Development and Clinical Research is proud to present this moderated discussion to inform patients and healthcare providers about clinical trials. Explore the process, benefits and considerations of participating in clinical research from patients, researchers and other experts who have first-hand experience. This webinar is the first of many events designed to increase awareness of the impacts of unconscious bias, social determinants of health and lack of inclusion of racial and ethnic minorities in critical aspects of product development, treatment and healthcare.
