Kitchen Table Conversations: Clinical Trials and Diversity

Clinical trials are the foundation of medical advancements. They set the stage for the future of medicine, promoting hope throughout the infertility community. However, a lack of diversity, most notably in terms of racial identity, among research participants can weaken a clinical trial’s effectiveness.

In this episode of Kitchen Table Conversations, Barbara Collura, RESOLVE President and CEO introduces the discussion about the importance of including diverse people, specifically people of color, in clinical trials. Dr. Michael Thomas, MD, President of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM), and Evan Sussman, CEO of Granata Bio, share their expert opinions and insight regarding why diverse representation in clinical trials is critical for supporting equitable access and addressing health disparities – especially for the infertility community.

Tune in to the full episode to hear more about why diverse representation in clinical trials is so important and what kind of consequences members of minority communities can face when diversity is not prioritized.
