Why diverse clinical trials matter: the pharmaphorum podcast


In this episode of the pharmaphorum podcast, editor in chief Jonah Comstock welcomes Dr. Jennifer Jones-McMeans, divisional vice president for global affairs for Abbott’s vascular business to discuss diversity and equity in clinical trials.

Jennifer discusses how Abbott has approached these issues in the clinical trials for their vascular medical devices.

Tune in for a frank, detailed, and solution-oriented conversation about one of the most important topics in clinical trials today, and learn how the industry can move forward into a more representative future for clinical trials.
