Senior communications specialist

We’re part of a multisite research project to establish best practices for explaining various healthcare research methods to the general public. Our innovative approach is to use easy-to-digest comics and videos to explain complex topics such as randomization, informed consent and variation in medical decisions. The goal is to convey these concepts in ways the general public can understand so patients and families considering whether to participate in a medical research study can make informed decisions.
