The Office of Community Outreach & Engagement: "Better Outcomes for Everyone"

May 4, 2021

The Fred Hutch COVID-19 Clinical Research Center (CCRC) was one of the first establishments in the nation to focus work on treating and preventing the virus. Now that there are vaccines and new treatments, there is still work to be done in ensuring underserved communities have equally successful outcomes from studied interventions. How do we promote COVID-19 clinical trials to communities that typically would not have access to participation like this?

Dr. Rachel Bender Ignacio, MD MPH, Dr. Alex Lankowski, MD, and CHE Liszet Bigelow, MSW join us to talk about what the CCRC is working on to fight the COVID-19 Pandemic and how we can address vaccine and treatment hesitancy from those most affected.
