Women's Outreach Workers Project Releases New Educational Video


New Video Addresses Questions Women and Minorities May Have Regarding ACTG Network Clinical Trials

The Women's Outreach Workers (WOW) Project was established with the goal of developing optimal strategies for increasing recruitment and retention of women, particularly women of color in ACTG Network clinical trials. Led by Susan E. Cohn, MD, MPH, Investigator at our Northwestern University Site, and working in collaboration with the Women's Health Inter-Network Scientific Committee (WHISC) and the Underrepresented Populations Committee (UPC), the WOW Project team created an educational video to help to answer many questions women and minorities may have about participating in ACTG Network clinical trials.
