NYCHBL is proud to present the second in a series on The Future of Clinical Trials, with an exciting discussion focused on the patient experience from a variety of perspectives. All of our panelists have impressive backgrounds in healthcare, but on this night they will be speaking not only as healthcare professionals, but also from their personal experiences – as a patient, a parent of a pediatric patient, a caregiver and a physician/investigator. Join us for a meaningful discussion as they share personal stories about the current state of clinical trials and how there is still much room for improvement.
