Rosie's Story: What Clinical Research Means to Me
Chances are you are on a prescribed medication right now. Perhaps, it has corrected your condition; perhaps it has improved your life. Whatever the case may be, all prescribed medications went through a clinical trial before being approved for others, others that may include our families, our friends, our loved ones. I am continually amazed and grateful that every day people give of their time, share their personal stories and leave feeling confident that their participation in a clinical trial, does in fact, simply help others.
For me personally, at one time I aimlessly took a blood pressure pill every morning, never thinking of the clinical trial process. My main worry was just to remember to take it! What I now remember is that someone volunteered their time. At the end of the day, I believe we all leave feeling lighter, feeling better and truly, isn’t that what it’s all about?
