Partnership with DIA to honor People Who Give the Gift of Participation in Clinical Research
We are thrilled to announce the launch of a new event — the Medical Heroes Appreciation 5K Run and Walk in San Diego — to celebrate the volunteers who give the gift of participation in clinical research. The walk will coincide with the Drug Information Association’s (DIA) 50th Annual Meeting. It will take place Monday, June 16, 2014 outside the San Diego Convention Center from 6:45-8:00am. Participants are encouraged to register online at www.ciscrp.org/med-hero-5k.
“Medical Heroes are the millions of people who help advance public health and medical knowledge by taking part in clinical trials each year,” explains CISCRP’s founder, Ken Getz. “This special event recognizes their gift, raises public awareness and appreciation, and hopefully will become an annual tradition.”
Running and walking enthusiasts and all supporters of CISCRP’s mission are invited to participate or attend the event to show their support. Proceeds from the event will support education and outreach programs for patients and families interested in learning more about the clinical research process.
