The Importance of Diversity in Clinical Trials – Video

To develop therapies and treatments for everyone, it is important that clinical trial participants come from diverse backgrounds and identities. In this video, subject matter experts, inclusive of people who have participated in trials, explain why diversity is important in clinical trials and what is being done to improve representation. In addition, the past participants share their personal trial stories and highlight potential benefits for their communities.

This video was developed with feedback from subject matter experts, patients, and community advocates involved in diversifying clinical research. They all helped to make sure the topics, language, images, and design of this video is appropriate, educational, and engaging for audiences.    

This video was also reviewed by an Institutional Review Board (IRB), which is also known as an independent ethics committee. The IRB review ensures the video follows ethical guidelines for providing information about clinical research to patients and the public.
