People of Color make up approximately 40 percent of the U.S. population, but are underrepresented when it comes to participating in clinical research. This lack of diversity and inclusion has only widened the number of healthcare disparities for us. That’s a problem, so let’s fix it. When you become informed about your health and opportunities to participate in clinical research, you also become empowered. By participating, you demand that you, your friends, your family, and future generations are represented. It’s long overdue – but together, progress can happen NOW.
