CISCRP Returns to Chicago to Host Community Health and Education Event
Date:10/4/2017

The Center for Information and Study on Clinical Research Participation (CISCRP) is returning to Chicago for the second time this year to host a community health forum, called AWARE for All, on Thursday, October 26, 2017 from 5:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. CDT at the University of Illinois Chicago Forum. AWARE for All educational event, established by CISCRP, provides information and resources about clinical research and clinical trial participation to help the public make informed decisions about their health.

EMD Serono, one of the National Sponsors of the event, comments on the importance of bringing this type of program to local communities, like Chicago, in an effort to build greater public awareness of clinical research. “AWARE for All provides a unique opportunity to not only generate awareness around clinical research participation, but in addition offers a very special occasion to publicly thank and recognize the importance of clinical trials participants for their role in the advancement of medical science,” said Paulo Moreira, Vice President, Global Clinical Operations – External Innovation at EMD Serono.

The three-hour event is free and open to all. Attendees will have a chance to receive health screenings and flu shots, eat dinner, visit exhibitors, hear from experts about clinical research, and listen to patients share their experiences with clinical trials. The event will end with a Medical Heroes Appreciation Ceremony, honoring those who participate in clinical trials within the greater Chicago community. There will be prizes and giveaways as well as take-away information and resources about clinical research.

The Lupus Research Alliance, another National Sponsor for the event, remarks on why participating in AWARE for All events can benefit patients and their families. President and CEO Kenneth M. Farber noted, “Clinical research is essential to develop new therapies for people with difficult-to-treat diseases like lupus but awareness and participation is often low. The AWARE for All program makes it easy to learn about the many different clinical studies being conducted in their area so people can consider joining a trial as a treatment option.”

The event is produced by CISCRP with support from national sponsors EMD Serono and Lupus Research Alliance, and local and outreach sponsors Investigator Support Services, Uptown Research Institute, UltraGenyx, American Diabetes Association, and the ACRP – Chicagoland Chapter.

AWARE for All Chicago will be held on Thursday, October 26, 2017 from 5:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. CDT at the University of Illinois Chicago Forum, 725 W Roosevelt Road, Chicago, IL 60608. Registration is free, but advanced registration is encouraged and can be done by visiting http://www.awareforall.org or by calling toll-free 1-877-MED-HERO (1-877-633-4376). As a bonus, register and bring a friend or family member and be entered in a raffle to win a Kindle!
