We are living in a time of unprecedented awareness of the value of diversity, equity, and inclusion across every facet of U.S. culture. Yet, despite all of the attention and energy around health equity – what we see in the data is that we’ve made almost zero progress to improve representation in clinical trials. Diversity has chronically been overlooked and de-prioritized in clinical trial design and implementation, and patients of color are consistently left behind. In this panel, we’ll discuss the scale of racial and ethnic disparities in clinical trials, and explore new opportunities for data-driven innovation to address the barriers that perpetuate health disparities and keep certain populations from participating in clinical trials.
