Just Ask

Equity and Diversity in Clinical Research

The “Just Ask” Minority Participation in Research Program helps to ensure patients are aware and knowledgeable about research and clinical trial participation and that researchers are well equipped with the necessary skills to communicate with diverse populations. The program provides support to research teams and clinical staff to improve minority enrollment in research.
