Piedmont Medical Research (PMR) participated in WXII’s Wellness & Lifestyle Expo on Saturday, March 6, 2010. Approximately 5000 people attended this event and PMR was able to educate several hundred attendees about the value of clinical research and our currently enrolling studies. It was our pleasure to perform health screenings for blood pressure and body mass index (BMI). As a ‘thank you’ for participating in our screenings, we distributed Health Passports and re-usable lime green grocery totes…and what a hit these were!
PMR would like to offer a special thank you to Judith Cox, Ms. Senior Davidson County/Ms Senior North Carolina contestant, and clinical research participant with PMR. Ms. Cox kept our long lines entertained with stories of her experience as a clinical research participant and as the winner of the Ms. Senior Davidson County pageant.
Thank you to everyone who was a part of this huge success. See you next year. (Written by Andrea Williams, Piedmont Medical Research)
