As 2016 comes to a close, we are kicking off our annual End of Year fundraising appeal here at CISCRP! We know that this is the time of year when important decisions are being made for how to allocate investment dollars in patient-centric initiatives. Our hope is that a donation to CISCRP will be considered as part of this decision.
These vital, end-of-year donations to CISCRP are invested in programs that help to support our mission and engage the public and patients as partners in the clinical research process. As an organization at the forefront of patient engagement, we achieve this through outreach, awareness building, and education. Donations drive the growth of our AWARE for All free health education days, Medical Hero Appreciation 5k events, free online educational resources, Traveling Medical Hero Museum Exhibit, Should I Participate brochure series, and much more!
This fall CISCRP will be hosting three AWARE for All events in Miami, California, and Boston, respectively. There will be over three hundred attendees at each of these events – including clinical research professionals, patient advocacy groups, as well as the general public. These AWARE for All events are just one example of the programs that CISCRP is able to offer to the public because of the generous donations received by our supporters.
Making a donation to CISCRP is making an investment and commitment to educating the public and patients about the importance of clinical research. We thank all of our supporters for their contributions!
