FDA OMH Launches New PSA on Veterans and Clinical Trial Diversity
In recognition of National Minority Health Month, FDA Office of Minority Health (OMH) has joined forces with the Veterans Health Administration's Office of Health Equity within the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to release two new public service announcement (PSA) videos on the importance of having diverse participants in clinical trials. Veterans can face unique health challenges, and diverse participants are needed in clinical trials to ensure that medical products, like medicines, vaccines, or devices, are safe and effective for everyone.
You can support us by sharing our PSAs on your social media pages and agency websites. Below, you can links to the videos which can be shared via social media, along with a few social media messages. You can also link to our website at www.fda.gov/MinorityHealth to refer people to the videos. Together, we can help raise awareness on clinical trial diversity.
