Diversity Recruitment into Clinical Trials
I became involved with the MIND Study because I knew it was how I could make the most of my situation. With my loving wife and study partner by my side, I can easily participate in research that helps those that come after me my children and grandchildren.
All the staff members administering the study have been incredibly kind and helpful. They made the process feel comfortable and easy, and their care has shown through like a bright light I want to thank each and every one of them for all their help and dedication.- Dan P. - Syracuse, NY
