As clinical researchers, we work to make sure that people of different ages, races, ethnic and genders are included in clinical trials, but it is not always easy. Please join us as Dr. Gary Puckrein talks about the importance of diversity in clinical studies and how to enhance our ability to recruit a patient population that is representative of the groups that the intervention is designed to benefit.
