The CRC recognizes that minority participation in clinical research studies is essential in eliminating health disparities in our communities. The Recruitment/Retention core facilitates successful involvement of minorities in clinical research studies by regularly engaging minority communities in activities of the CRC.
Functions: The recruitment core facility assists with educating the community on clinical trials, providing information on health disparities issues, and increasing the number of participants enrolled in clinical research trials at Morehouse School of Medicine. It introduces and enhances the awareness of human subject’s rights with regards to participation in clinical trials, through community outreach.
Usage and Benefits: The Recruitment/Retention core provides all Morehouse clinical researchers with reliable and comprehensive strategies for successful recruitment for their individual protocols, allowing them to optimize all avenues and resources.
Community Collaborations: The Recruitment/Retention core has served in many capacities throughout the institution and the community. The core has served as a consultant team for several projects with Community Health and Preventive Medicine, 100 Black Men of Atlanta and DeKalb County, concerts, community organizations and local churches.
