In the closing keynote of the 2020 AdvanSE Conference, Drs. Luther Clark, Jayne Morgan, Felix Sogade and Garin Wilson join moderator Tiffany Jordan-Winslow for a deep dive into the issue of African Americans distrust of the U.S. healthcare industry and its implications for the Covid era.
Education on Covid, reasons to be vaccinated and the cause of inclusion into clinical trials. We bringing together a researcher, a clinical trial expert, and a prominent member of the black community to take a step toward alleviating distrust by discussing the issues and concerns.
Minorities in Clinical Trials
African Americans make up 13.4% of the US population, yet represent less than 7% of participants in clinical trials.
SE Color’s initial effort will focus on increasing the number of minorities in clinical trials. Our initial priorities are to to share information on clinical trials available throughout the southeast, building community trust in clinical trials, and working with state and local leaders to addressing concerns from the community. As part of this, SE Color will focus on education and community engagement.
