“Few stories have the power to change perspective as they inspire and remind you of the power of clinical research to change and improve lives – and this is one of them,” said Ibraheem (Ibs) Mahmood, President and CEO of DrugDev. “When we say the industry needs to ‘Do More Trials,’ this is exactly why. We were honored to have Jay share Alex’s story at our User Summit last year, and I can't think of a better way to start 2016 than to help introduce Alex and her lessons to a wider audience through this webinar.”

Alex Scott started Alex's Lemonade Stand to help fight childhood cancer and she raised more than $1 million before passing away. Her father, Jay Scott, founded Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) to honor what Alex was able to accomplish in her life – and beyond – because of the clinical trials in which she was enrolled.

Today, ALSF is one of the world's leading fund-raising organizations for pediatric cancer research and has funded over 550 grants to over 100 research hospitals. Jay will share Alex's story, and those of other children fighting cancer, in an open and honest discussion that should not be missed. Register here.

About the Presenter
Jay Scott is the Co-Executive Director of Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, a nonprofit organization founded by his daughter, Alexandra “Alex” Scott. When Alex decided to hold a lemonade stand to help doctors find new treatments and ultimately a cure for all childhood cancers, including her own, Jay and his wife Liz supported Alex’s mission every step of the way. After cancer took Alex’s life they established the Foundation to continue the work Alex started and find a cure for all childhood cancers. Under Jay’s leadership, the Foundation has experienced dramatic growth since 2005, raising more than $100 million and funding over 500 childhood cancer research projects in North America. ALSF – fighting childhood cancer, one cup at a time.
