Clinical Trials

Pay It Forward: Volunteering for a Clinical Trial

Getting medical discoveries from the research lab to patients depends on clinical trials and the people who volunteer to participate in them.   Volunteering in a trial may help society at large by bringing new treatments one step closer to patients, and could help a loved one if you have a genetic disease or condition.  Volunteering may also give you access to a cutting-edge treatment and medical team that carefully monitors your health.  But clinical trials can’t happen without volunteers, and 37% of trials don't enroll enough patients to move forward.  Clinical trials need volunteers like you so watch this short film to find out more about why they are important, how to get involved, and what it means to participate.

  • Choosing the appropriate OTC pain medication
  • Taking it safely and according to directions
  • Storing it Up and Away and out of sight of little ones
  • Disposing of it when they no longer want it

Three pocket films, a patient quiz, and links to other important resources are included.
