Improving Equity and Access to Health Care: How Nontraditional Organizations Can Help Increase Clinical Trial Diversity

This paper focuses on the organization’s efforts around the principle, “The right to participate in clinical trials without fear” from the ADA's Health Equity Bill of Rights. Too often, the communities that most need the drug or medical product are excluded from clinical trial participation, potentially hindering the ability to gauge efficacy and safety. Drugs and treatments used for diabetes and other chronic diseases must be developed in partnership with the communities that will use them, and participating individuals must be protected in the scientific process. Read the paper.
