LOS ANGELES, September 20, 2021
Join Science 37 and a Panel of Industry Leaders for a Pragmatic Discussion about “What it Takes to Truly Empower Diversity in Clinical Trials”

The webinar will feature leaders from Novartis, PPD, National Urban League, Colorectal Cancer Alliance and Science 37

Science 37’s Global Head, Diversity in Clinical Trials, Ryan Pack, will host a interactive discussion with leaders from Novartis, PPD, National Urban League and Colorectal Cancer Alliance on how the biopharmaceutical industry can move beyond lip service and truly empower diversity in clinical trials.

WHEN: Thursday, October 7, 2021 at 11:00 a.m. ET/ 4:00 pm BST/ 5:00 pm CET

WHY ATTEND: As an industry, we have a clear and moral imperative to create and improve health equity, from clinical studies to real-world outcomes. But, for under-represented populations, opportunities to participate in clinical research have historically been limited. How do we move beyond lip service along the path toward true representation?

Representing the gamut of stakeholders, this webinar will explore:

  • Why it's so crucial to increase representation in clinical trials, for both patients and providers
  • The historical barriers to participation among underserved and disadvantaged populations
  • Practical tools that can dramatically increase the diversity of a study—and how best to use them
  • And, how agile clinical trials are key to real-world success


  • Kim Fookes, Global Head, Diversity and Inclusion in Clinical Trials, Novartis
  • Rodrigo Garcia, M.D., M.S.H.S, VP Patient Centered Trials, PPD
  • Lydia A. Isaac, PhD MSc, Vice President, Health Equity and Policy, National Urban League
  • Alexandra Miller, Senior Director of Community Engagement, Colorectal Cancer Alliance
  • Ryan Pack, Global Head, Diversity in Clinical Trials, Science 37 (Moderator)
