“Considering Clinical Trials and Research Studies”
GP Large Room and via Zoom

January 26, 2023 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm

Join us either at The Gathering Place or from your home via Zoom

Ever wonder how clinical trial and research study participants are recruited for clinical trials and research studies that test medical concepts? Join us for a conversation with Emily Olsson, Program Manager for the NC Translational and Clinical Sciences (NC TraCS) Institute at UNC.

Emily will discuss the work of the Institute, her role there, and how participants are recruited, educated, and supported. This presentation will cover general information about study design and the research process and will show individuals how to explore and consider the pros and cons of participation. Emily also will discuss important issues such as participant rights, consent, privacy, and ethics. There will be ample time for questions and open discussion!

Ms. Olsson has worked at UNC for 14 years and is a co-author of numerous publications. She enjoys sharing her passion about the importance of research participation with researchers, patients, and the public.
