PMG Research is excited to share that we have partnered with The Center for Information and Study on Clinical Research Participation (CISCRP) as a sponsor for the Inaugural Medical Heroes Appreciation 5K Run & Walk to show appreciation for all clinical trial volunteers. The event will coincide with the Drug Information Association (DIA) 2014 Annual Meeting taking place in San Diego on Monday, June 16, 2014. The DIA Annual Meeting is the largest multidisciplinary event that brings together a global network of life sciences professionals to foster innovation that will lead to the development of safe and effective medical products and therapies to patients.

With a mission to bring clinical research to as many lives as possible, PMG Research has partnered with CISCRP in order to raise public awareness and appreciation for clinical trial participants, also known as Medical Heroes.

The 5K event will recognize the gift of the millions of volunteers who participate in clinical trials to help advance the development of life changing therapies. Proceeds from the event will support education and outreach programs to patients and members of the public interested in learning more about the clinical research process. In addition, a vaccine will be donated to a child in need for every race participant through the Greater Gift Initiative.

We are thrilled to be a part of this great event as a way to say THANK YOU to all our clinical trial participants! We will be sure to share pictures and information from the day of the race!

  1. What a worthy and inspiring event! Clinical trial participation is such a vital part of medical progress, and it is so important to recognize the great volunteers that make it possible. I think that unfortunately people take medical advancements for granted sometimes, from the smallest things like taking an aspirin for a headache, to the biggest and most serious surgeries. Sure, we feel grateful at times, but do we tend to think of medical treatments as things that doctors and scientists come up with in a lab. Though that is partially true, it would never be possible without the participation of clinical trial participants.

    Unfortunately, many misguided people toss around terms like "guinea pig" and act negative about such an amazing process that enables the progression of medicine. Events like this bring to light that clinical trial participants are rendering a great service to society-- while also taking advantage of their best chance at getting better. Thank you so much for spreading this gratitude and awareness! Events like this truly have the power to change people's mindsets and thereby change the future.
