Jonathan Jackson, PhD, Director CARE Research Center, Massachusetts General Hospital, and Jim Kremidas, Executive Director, Association of Clinical Research Professionals (ACRP) sit down for a frank discussion on the benefits of offering clinical research in underserved communities. Many communities, whether affected by race, ethnicity, or socioeconomic lines, are underrepresented in clinical research. How can offering these care options enhance access to other resources in a broader sense and better educate these communities to the opportunities that clinical research provides?
This discussion was presented at the Clinical Research as a Care Option (CRAACO) meeting on April 11, 2018 in Cambridge, MA.
The 2019 CRAACO conference will take place April 29-30 in Raleigh-Durham, NC. Find out more here.
