You are invited to AWARE for All - Washington, D.C.,an informative educational event and health fair, featuring talks from Washington, D.C.,-based experts on cutting-edge science and clinical research. Additionally, we will be providing free health screenings for all attendees.
A very high percentage of the public cannot name a place where clinical trials are conducted, and most say they wouldn’t know what to do if they needed to find and evaluate clinical trials to aid in their decision to participate. Most professionals also point to the low 3% of eligible patients who participate.
To address this educational need and opportunity, CISCRP is teaming up with GHUCCTS and other local organizations to plan a live community education program that aims to educate and empower the public to make informed decisions about all treatment options available, including clinical research participation. The event, entitled AWARE for All, includes informational exhibits that feature research charities and centers, local physicians and patient speakers, a reception to honor clinical research participants or “Medical Heroes,” free food and health checks.
