Distrust of medical trials is a familiar and painful topic in the Black community. How can clinical researchers begin to gain the confidence of this critical group?
On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization declared COVID-19 a global pandemic. Shortly after, we launched World Without COVID (WWC) and connected over 10,000 individuals with clinical trials for diagnosis, treatment, and vaccine discovery.
In addition to experiencing stigma, discrimination, and a denial of civil and human rights, many members of the LGBTQ community are omitted from clinical trials. And when it comes to testing new drugs, therapies, and devices, there is a huge lack of needed diversity in clinical trials.
