Clinical Trial Awareness

Clinical trials help medical professionals find out how effective treatments are. But they’re not a “one size fits all” proposition, particularly when minority populations don’t participate.

An effort has been launched to bring researchers from USF and Moffitt Cancer Center together with community leaders to alleviate that problem. We’ll have details on University Beat on WUSF 89.7.
