Who are the Black Women in Clinical Research?
Clinical Research is a field for people who want to make a difference in the world. It is a path that goes beyond finding a means to make a living and offers a platform to drive real change, in one of the most sensitive and important industries - Health. Clinical Research is a component of medical and health research whose focus is to use clinical trials and observational studies to provide knowledge on:
- Understanding human disease
- Developing preventive measures against illnesses
- Developing diagnostic methods
- Developing new means of treating illnesses
- Providing better patient care
To achieve these, health-background specialists such as nurses, physicians, pharmacists, medical specialists, dentists, physicians, and technologists can take a dive into the Clinical Research industry and be at the forefront of development. Additionally, individuals with a background in Data and who have a passion for serving humanity are also excellent candidates for a career in Clinical Research.
Indeed, the industry still has much room for absorption of new entrants, and particularly for a diverse and inclusive cohort. This is the reason Danielle S. Coe, founder and Chief Executive Officer of Black Women in Clinical Research, set up a community and platform to educate, empower, support, and help Black Women thrive in the field. Together with a team of brilliant and diversely skilled ladies, BWICR has supported thousands of women in establishing a career in Clinical Research, built the competencies of those in the field, and formed a sisterhood of learning together and of collective development.
