Diversity in Clinical Trials Toolkit

Posted by on July 13th, 2016 Posted in: Minority Health Concerns


Diversity in clinical trials is an important issue, as minorities sometimes respond differently to medical products. Race and ethnicity could affect the dose a person needs, or something even more serious. But racial and ethnic minorities are not well represented in clinical trials, and that means health disparities may continue to exist.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administrtation’s Office of Minority Health has released six new public service announcements, a blog and an infographic that can be used to encourage minorities to join clinical trials.
