Diving into Clinical Trials with PEP!IN

So, What's a Clinical Trial Anyway, and How Does It Work?

At its core, a clinical trial is our community's step forward in healthcare. The testing of new, innovative medications, therapies, and medical devices must be safe, effective, and of high quality for the ones who will use them. It’s where tradition meets innovation, ensuring the advancements resonate with our unique health needs and narratives.

Breaking Down The Clinical Trial Process


The Foundation

Every study should begin with a Diversity Plan. It’s like a recipe passed down through generations but with a twist. We outline what we are aiming to discover, steps needed to be taken, people who should be involved, and the markers of success.


Knowledge & Empowerment

When the results are available to the public, we are able to reflect on the experience and understand the implications for different communities


Community Watch

We are interested in your experience. After the study is over and your participation ends, we would like to continue this journey with you to better understand your experience. Others may be able to learn too.
