Welcome to National Black Church
Initiative's Clinical Trial Portal

NBCI is ushering in a new era of broadened engagement of Black and Latino communities in clinical trials. Particularly given the unethical and illegal behaviors involved with the Tuskegee Experiment and the intentional absence or lack of critical information for the involved subjects by governmental officials, the NBCI comprehensive approach utilizes important lessons learned from this historic medical abuse and ALL others experienced within Black and Latino communities for generating robust communication, demonstration, and education strategies toward substantially improving clinical trial participation.

The goal of the NBCI Interactive Clinical Trials Portal is to improve the health outcomes of the African American community by making African Americans aware of the critical features, benefits, and challenges of clinical trials. This study website provides scientific facts that may positively influence African Americans' feelings about their participation in clinical trials. Additionally, this website attempts to provide an understanding of the complex relationship African Americans have historically had with clinical trials.

The National Black Church Initiative (NBCI) is a coalition of 150,000 African-American and Latino churches working to eradicate racial disparities in healthcare, technology, education, housing, and the environment.
