Despite making up a substantial part of the U.S. population, racial and ethnic minorities constitute less than 18% of clinical trial participants. Low accrual rates for clinical trials among racial minorities may contribute to disparities in treatment outcomes. This workshop will discuss various approaches to engaging diverse communities in research.
