In this age of personalized medicine, it seems obvious that a clinical trial studying a new medicine should include representatives from the entire population to whom it may be prescribed. However, this is not the case for many of the studies currently being conducted. While globalization has broadened the overall diversity of participation in clinical trials, in the US the patients taking part in clinical trials are not characteristic of the population at large.
Dr. Sandoval will lead an open and frank discussion on how doctors can ensure diverse patient representation in clinical trials. He will discuss the important work being done in his clinic to support participation of more patients from ethnic minorities in clinical trials. And, he will offer guidance on how the industry as a whole can work better to provide clinical trial opportunities to a broad patient community.
