FDA Office of Minority Health Launches New Podcast Series
FDA Office of Minority Health (OMH) has launched a new podcast series to discuss minority health issues and the ways in which FDA OMH is working to reduce health disparities. In honor of National Minority Health Month, we joined forces with FDA's Office of Health and Constituent Affairs (OHCA) and brought together three U.S. Army Veterans - Retired Command Sergeant Major Zulma Santiago, Retired Staff Sergeant Quinyardo McClain, and United States Army Reserve First Sergeant Javier Chavez - to talk about the importance of having veterans participate in clinical trials.
During their candid conversation, the veterans discussed their experiences in clinical trials and why they chose to participate in FDA OMH's podcast and public service announcement (PSA) videos. They also explained why it is important for our nation's veterans and active service members to learn more about clinical trial participation. Veterans can face unique health challenges, and diverse participants are needed in clinical trials to ensure that medical products, like medications, vaccines, and devices are safe and effective for everyone.
You can listen to the podcast here and you can watch the PSA videos featuring Retired Command Sergeant Santiago and Retired Staff Sergeant McMclain on YouTube. You can also support us by promoting the podcast with the social media messages below.
