Without research, we would have no new prevention and treatment medicines. Thanks to research, people who could have died from disease are able to live healthy lives.
But without the people volunteering for these clinical trials, healthcare would never advance and we would never find vaccines and treatments to keep people healthy.
Every drug we take, from something as simple as Panado, has gone through clinical trials. Every life-saving vaccine has gone through extensive clinical trials and been safely tested in willing volunteers. Some of these vaccines include the polio, smallpox and measles vaccines which have helped eradicate these diseases.
Volunteers for clinical trials help to test and develop medicine that can protect the most vulnerable people in our society, such as older people, those with chronic conditions and those with weakened immune systems. These volunteers deserve our gratitude.
Right to Care is here to serve our community. We help by making sure that the latest healthcare options are available to the people we serve. To do this, we actively seek ways to advance our knowledge and expand the medications and treatments available.
