"Structural Racism and the Unfulfilled Promises of Personalized Medicine: Clinical trials in the Age of Colorblindness"
In this roundtable discussion, participants will discuss issues related to race in clinical trials. Personalized medicine has begun to shine a light on ethnic and racial differences in drug responses, drug metabolism, and disease susceptibility. However, despite long-acknowledged differences, the vast majority of clinical trial participants are still white. We’ll collaboratively address structural barriers, ethical dimensions, and how to write professionally, accurately and sensitively about race issues in medical reporting.
Friday, October 7, 12:15-1:45 PM. Lunch will be provided. Space is very limited, to give each participant a chance to contribute to this rich topic in a safe, intimate environment. Register today!
