RISE for Equity Podcast: Breaking Barriers | Inclusive Health Perspectives through Diverse Clinical Trials and Community Engagement
While historically there has been limited inclusion of racial and ethnic minorities in research studies and clinical trials, critical strides have been taken in medicine to increase representation to help address health disparities and inequities. Gaining diverse perspectives in research provides an opportunity to enhance our understanding of the unique challenges faced by different racial and ethnic groups and also helps dismantle biases and stereotypes.
On this episode of the RISE for Equity podcast, Kim M. Barbel Johnson, D.O., M.P.H., and Doug Murrell, JR, M.P.A. join host Nicole Nfonoyim-Hara to discuss the impacts of diversifying decentralized clinical trials, and the impacts of community engagement in healthcare.
Guest: Dr. Kim M. Barbel Johnson is a community-centric, patient-focused Family Physician and Principal Research Investigator working in the Hematology and Oncology departments, at Mayo Clinic, Jacksonville, Florida.
Douglas (Doug) Murrell works with Community Engagement department of Mayo Clinic’s Center for Clinical and Translational Science (CCATS) as the Operations Manager for the Community-Engaged Research Program.
