Participate in clinical research               

You can make a difference 

Researchers are working hard to identify new treatments and strategies to improve health and to understand the diseases that make us sick, but in order to succeed they need both healthy research participants and participants with medical conditions. Often, studies end because they don't have enough participants, leaving important questions unanswered. 

You can make a difference by participating in research. Health research ranges from simple questionnaires and screenings to clinical trials of investigational drugs and devices.
