Clinical Trials: Innovating for Inclusion

Mar 10, 2023

2:30pm – 3:30pm CT

People of color are still tremendously underrepresented in clinical trials, even when their lives are at stake. While technology can connect people to life-saving trials, if you can’t access the technology, it can’t help you.

So, how can tech companies innovate to include rather than exclude those who are already being marginalized? Our panel of health, advocacy, and tech experts will problem-solve in real-time and think of bold solutions that can help close rather than widen the race gap in clinical trials.

And because dismantling racial disparities will take the work of everyone, we’ll be asking our live audience to join the discussion and “raise their hand” if they want to get involved.
