Community Screening Program

Our Community Screening Program helps make reaching diverse and underrepresented populations a reality. Through partnerships with community leaders and local screening events, we help more communities gain access to research studies while helping sponsors reach their enrollment goals sooner.

Make Clinical Trials More Accessible

Reach Patients Where They Are

Our network of permanent research sites around the globe, along with our mobile infrastructure, have delivered hundreds of large-scale community pre-screening events to make study enrollment more efficient, predictable, and representative.

Empower Communities To Get Involved

We build meaningful partnerships with local healthcare providers and organizations to empower communities, including underserved communities, through education and access.

More Communities Should Have Access to Clinical Research

Through our grassroots approach, we authentically partner with local leaders and community members, to reach underrepresented participants and adapt to what works best for each community.

People of different ethnicities, ancestries, and socioeconomic backgrounds may react differently to medical treatments, so clinical trials need to be representative of the populations they aim to treat. Increasing representation requires a multi-faceted approach grounded on meaningful partnerships in underrepresented communities.

Community Partnerships for Any Population

We connect with local organizations that share the common goal of improving the health of their communities. These relationships increase awareness of, and access to, clinical trials benefiting both current and future generations.

  • Senior-living communities
  • Long-term care facilities
  • Faith-based organizations
  • Colleges and universities, including HBCUs
  • Community centers
  • Minority group associations
  • Service organizations
  • Parks and recreation organizations
  • Gyms and fitness centers
  • Rotary Clubs
  • Chambers of Commerce
  • Retail partners
