New Brochure Educates Patients about Biospecimen Donation
A new brochure, How You Can Help Medical Research: Donating Your Blood, Tissue, and Other Samples, explains how donating samples can help advance cancer research. The brochure, developed by NCI’s Office of Biorepositories and Biospecimen Research and Office of Communications and Education, covers common terms, explains the importance of donation, addresses potential concerns, and encourages readers to speak with their health care providers.
The brochure also provides answers to questions and concerns patients may have about biospecimen donation, helping readers make a more-informed decision about whether donation is right for them.
