Clinical trial diversity: An update

pharmaphorum podcast episode 91

Editor-in-chief Jonah Comstock welcomes back returning guest Dr Jennifer Jones-McMeans, divisional vice president for global affairs for Abbott’s vascular business.

Jennifer was on the podcast just over a year ago to talk about the importance of clinical trial diversity, and she’s back with an update on that important topic, as well as some news from Abbott in the area.

Jennifer discusses a new grant initiative Abbott is launching in partnership with the Norton Healthcare Foundation, a training programme with Barnett International, and Abbott’s new Diversity in Research Office.

More broadly, Jennifer and Jonah talk about the many layered challenges of clinical trial diversity and why initiatives like this are important to tackle specific problems. You can check out our Deep Dive on this topic, mentioned in the episode, here.
