Clinical Trials Chat Rescheduled for this Wed., Sept. 26

I am happy to report that the Clinical Trials & Lupus Webchat has been rescheduled for this Wednesday, September 26 at 3 p.m. EDT.

As a reminder, Mr. Ken Getz, the founder and Board Chair of CISCRP, the Center for Information and Study on Clinical Research Participation, will serve as the host.

CISCRP is a non-profit organization focused on educating and informing the public about clinical research participation. CISCRP is not involved in recruiting patients for clinical trials nor is it involved in conducting clinical trials.

Whether you realize it or not, clinical trials play an important role in public health. There have been no new drugs developed to treat lupus in more than 40 years. The only way to test up and coming drugs is through clinical trials, where everyday folks, like you, agree to participate in a medically controlled setting to see what drugs may work.

With that in mind, we look forward to seeing you at Wednesday's (technically error-free!!) chat. Until next time.
