Clinical Trials Field Trips
NBCI is engaged in a fourteen (14) city initiative to motivate African-Americans and Latinos to participate in clinical trials. NBCI’s Clinical Trials Field Trip Program encourages individuals to participate in a field trip to a clinical research site, speak to clinical researchers, and learn about the processes of participating in a clinical trial.
NBCI hopes to motivate African-Americans and Latinos to participate in clinical trials by exposing them to clinicians who are knowledgeable about the basic elements of clinical trials and their enormous benefits.
NBCI seeks to improve African-American and Latino health outcomes through education, awareness, and clinical trial participation. We are committed to having our communities not be drastically affected by chronic diseases that are often a result of being predisposed conditions (i.e. high blood pressure, diabetes).
Below is a list of teaching hospital and research centers that NBCI may potentially work with:
- New York-Presbyterian Hospital, New York, NY
- University of Maryland General Clinical Research Center, Baltimore, MD
- Mount Sinai Hospital, New York, NY
