On Monday, May 20th, National Cancer Institute (NCI) will be celebrating Clinical Trials Day. For this occasion NCI is releasing video to draw attention to the strides NCORP Sites are making to bring the latest knowledge and research studies to our communities.
After months of development and vetting, the NCORP video, “Cancer Clinical Trials in Your Community: NCI Community Oncology Research Program (NCORP),” captures the essence of NCORP with several PIs sharing their thoughts and perspectives on the importance of the program to their communities.
A new video highlights the research efforts of the NCI Community Oncology Research Program (NCORP) in implementing cancer clinical trials and other research studies across the country. In the video, several communities ranging in size and geographic coverage are characterized by NCORP principal investigators.
“The video embodies the voice and vision of the NCORP and the communities they serve,” said NCORP Director, Worta McCaskill-Stevens, MD, MS.
The researchers note that the NCORP makes it easier for people from diverse settings to enroll in cancer clinical trials. The national network of more than 9,000 doctors, nurses and research staff at over 1,000 sites throughout the United States, Puerto Rico and Guam works to improve cancer care for everyone.
