Enhancing Diversity and Equity in Clinical Trials
About the CREATE Initiative
The CREATE initiative at UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center works to increase awareness about the importance of cancer clinical trials and partner with community members to address the gaps in clinical research participation.
We want to make sure that patients have all the information they need to participate in decisions about their health, especially when it comes to participation in clinical trials.
