Integrating the Community Voice to Advance Cancer Research

Optimal cancer care delivery changes from place to place—what works best for one location and patient population may not be ideal for another. The same reasoning also applies to cancer research. Understanding the needs of your patient population is critical to trial design and implementation. But how can you proactively involve your community in cancer research.

Join a live discussion on Wednesday, January 27, for strategies to incorporate your community’s needs and perspective into your research program. Expert panelists from Wake Forest will share their experience and guidance to help you better understand the burden of cancer in your impact area, present ways to involve and empower patient advocates in clinical research, and discuss strategies for effective trial design and communication.
