America's patient population is socioeconomically and ethnically diverse, yet clinical research fails to reflect the diversity of our nation.
In particular, COVID-19 is hitting minority populations the hardest, with Black patients experiencing a higher mortality rate from the disease than any other demographic.
Yet, Blacks, Latinos, and Native Americans are underrepresented (1% - 15% or participants) in the clinical research that is being conducted right now.
Health centers can help solve this crisis by participating in clinical research initiatives.

New vaccines and medicines depend on clinical research to ensure they are safe and effective for the general population.
When trials lack racial, ethnic, gender, and socioeconomic diversity, research fails to meet its goals.
It's our societal imperative to increase diversity in clinical trials. Given the unique population health centers serve, health centers are the missing link in increasing trial awareness and trial participant diversity.
