Partner With Us
Minority patients and uninsured patients are underrepresented in important medical research to find treatments for the very diseases that affect them – often disproportionately. The dilemma is that these communities experience significant health disparities, but do not benefit equitably from new discoveries. One of our main goals is to overcome the multiple barriers to study participation within racial and ethnic minority populations, including but not limited to Latino/Hispanic and African American communities.
That’s why we seek partners to help us undertake targeted recruitment and retention campaigns focused within schools, community and senior centers, specialized health organizations, churches and social organizations.
We especially need people who can reach out to and expand our network of community-based organizations, and/or help us implement multi-media advertising campaigns and community events.
We welcome queries from potential community outreach partners.
