The Innovation and Diversity Summit: Patient-centered Approaches to Care and Research, a collaboration of Yale School of Medicine and our partners at the FDA Office of Minority Health and Health Equity and the YCCI Cultural Ambassadors for Clinical Research, will focus on raising awareness about the need for minorities and subpopulation participation in clinical trials; patient-centered approaches to care and research; and the role of technology in both areas. This is the second event in a series of summits to focus on these issues. Our goal is to bring stakeholders from the governmental agencies, industry, academia, and community to provoke discussion about innovation and clinical trial diversity and raise awareness.
