CURE Initiative: Items for Clinical Trial Network Patients

As a part of the CURE Initiative (Clinical Trials, Understanding, Research, Education), HCC has launched tokens of appreciation for clinical trials patients. Patient journals, memo pads, highlighters, and pens are among the items available to our patients.

Additionally, the Clinical Trials Awareness video below includes five testimonies from former clinical trials patients. The video may be customized for your site and include contact information, logo, and photos of your facility and staff members.
