Narrowing the Health Equity Gap Through Clinical Research

1:45 PM - 2:45 PM (PDT), Tuesday, June 14, 2022 ・ Upper Level, Session Room 2


Enhancing diversity and inclusion in clinical studies is critical to closing the health equity gap. Clinical researchers should ensure clinical trials reflect the intended treatment population.
This forum will explore emerging principles and concrete strategies for addressing demographic disparities and achieving representativeness in clinical trials. The moderator will focus on initiatives to enhance diversity and inclusion in clinical trials. We will present emerging principles regarding what constitutes acceptable diversity in clinical studies and share insights into how engaging with clinicians and patients in underrepresented communities can help to achieve diversity and inclusion in the study of medical products to prevent and to treat disease.
