Complimentary Design Service for Recruitment Ads

YCCI has contracted with a local advertising firm, Mason, Inc., to develop an umbrella marketing campaign with the goal of increasing participation in clinical research. As part of this effort, we have invested in creating ad templates that can be used to advertise Yale research studies. This allows investigators to leverage the strength of the Yale brand to quickly and easily create compelling ads.
