CISCRP Collaborates with Sanofi to Educate Community on Clinical Trials
Date:8/31/2017

CISCRP is delighted to announce the upcoming AWARE for All clinical research education and health fair event that will take place in Newark, NJ. The event will be held on Thursday, September 28, 2017 from 5:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. at the Paul Robeson Campus Center at Rutgers University - Newark.

AWARE for All is a free community education program, established by CISCRP, that provides information and resources about the clinical research process and clinical trial participation to help the public make informed decisions about their health. The event serves as a platform for dialogue between local patients, members of the public, and advocacy and research professionals. This particular event will have a theme of “Advancing Medicines, Everyone’s Invited” highlighting the importance of diversity in clinical research with a specific focus on diabetes research.

Sanofi US, the Host Sponsor of this event, has been working closely with CISCRP as part of a larger awareness-building campaign about the importance of diversity in clinical trials. “Sanofi is proud to sponsor the Newark AWARE for All event. This initiative will raise awareness of the importance of clinical trial participation,” said Peter Lalli, Head of Sanofi North America Corporate Social Responsibility. “This will not only aid in gaining access to new therapies, but also help ensure medicines are safe and effective across all patient populations.”

Other organizations collaborating on this program include the American Diabetes Association, Angel Flight East, Antidote, CenterWatch, Health Unlocked, Langland, CISCRP’s National Event Sponsor The Lupus Research Alliance, the National Multiple Sclerosis Society – New Jersey Metro Chapter, Rutgers Health Sciences Campus at Newark, the Scott Research Center, and Sisters Network Essex County.

This community health event is also being recognized by Congressman Donald M. Payne, Jr. of New Jersey’s 10th District. Congressman Payne, Jr. comments, “We welcome the AWARE for All program to New Jersey as a chance for local residents to learn more about clinical research, diversity in clinical trial participation, and the importance of making informed decisions about one’s health care options. It is imperative to the advancement of medicine and science to include underrepresented groups in clinical research. I appreciate CISCRP and Sanofi US for bringing this information to the 10th District of New Jersey.”

Registration for AWARE for All is free and open to all. Attendees will have access to a variety of health screenings, dinner, prizes, and giveaways. There will also be informational exhibits, as well as a patient and professional panel discussion about participation in clinical research. The event will end with a Medical Heroes Appreciation Ceremony, honoring those who participate in clinical trials within the greater Newark community.

Ellyn Getz, Senior Manager of Development and Community Engagement at CISCRP remarks, “We are proud to bring this program to Newark for our premier New Jersey-based event. With Sanofi US’ generous host sponsorship, and support from other local organizations, we are working to increase health and clinical research literacy amongst the public, as well as to shed light on the many health-related resources available within the local community.”

AWARE for All Newark will be held on Thursday, September 28, 2017 from 5:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. at the Paul Robeson Campus Center at Rutgers University. Register today through http://www.everyonesinvited.org or by calling 1-877-MED-HERO (1-877-633-4376).
