GHUCCTS in the Community

Discovery through diversity is one of our priorities. Hear from our community partners, investigators, and clinical research participants about why community-engaged research makes a difference.

Graphic of a computer screen with cartoon faces of conference call participants on display, with the title GHUCCTS in the Community is now virtual and is a great opportunity to learn more about clinical research and health conditions that may be of interest to you. These events also provide an opportunity for you to engage with experts in various health-related fields.

During each session, a guest speaker will present on different topics such as: 

  • What should you ask before joining a trial?
  • What are the phases of clinical trials?
  • What’s a research registry? /How to find a trial?
  • Why is it important to have diversity in research?

Guest speakers will also discuss their research on health topics such as COVID-19, Diabetes, Parkinson's Disease, and many more!

Tell us what topics you’d like to hear by completing this survey.
