Participate in Research

You can make a difference through research

Researchers are working hard to identify new treatments and strategies to improve health and to understand the diseases that make us sick, but in order to succeed they need both healthy research participants and participants with medical conditions. You can make a difference by participating in research. Health research ranges from simple questionnaires and screenings to clinical research studies (clinical trials) of investigational drugs and devices.
