Event Details

Overview: 

 

Georgia Robins Sadler, BSN, MBA, PhD, the Associate Director for Community Outreach at the Moores UCSD Cancer Center and a clinical professor in the UCSD Department of Surgery, will discuss her research work related to increasing the community’s awareness of the role clinical trials play in advancing medical discoveries. The National Institutes of Health has mandated that research involving human subjects must be conducted with samples that are representative of the nation’s population sub-groups.  According to Sadler, “Unless samples include participants of diverse racial, ethnic, age, and other characteristics, conclusions from studies cannot be generalized with confidence to the population at-large.  Most people would be wary of accepting medical recommendations drawn from research in which no one from their community was involved.”  Sadler will talk about what every person needs to know about research methods, participation in research studies, and why research study opportunities are often hard to find.
