Children and Clinical Studies video screened at Genetic Alliance meeting
Dr. Susan Shurin - June 28, 2011
Children have often had to accept medicines and treatments based on what is known to work in adults. The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute is eager to improve the evidence to ensure the safety and efficacy of therapies for all children. We have provided this video to help families and investigators make wise decisions. Learn more at http://www.nhlbi.nih.gov/childrenandclinicalstudies/index.php
Congratulations to Vicki Pemberton and team, whose video about children in research studies from the NHLBI-hosted Children and Clinical Studies Web campaign was one of six short films selected to be shown at the annual Genetic Alliance conference. It's a real pleasure to see this project continuing to be recognized.
Pemberton noted about her experience at the screening:
