On April 27th, 2022, Dr. Lauren D. Nephew, MD, MA, MSCE gave TREATs talk "Clinical Trial Diversity: Who is Accountable?" In the talk, she examined why diversity is important, how pervasive the issue is, and potential solutions. She touches on the earned mistrust minority populations have towards the medical community as well as towards clinical research and barriers between both patients and providers in care settings. She points to accountability as a solution in promoting diversity in clinical trials, as well as individual, institutional, and policy changes that will aid in promoting diversity in clinical trials.
