What is the
CAM Luncheon

Community Advocacy MATCHMAKING (CAM) is a non CME Medical Education/MATCHMAKING Workshop for clinical research professionals (CRPs)

Medical Doctors, PhD, researchers, Principal Investigators, Clinical Coordinators, Clinical Associates, trial nurses, clinical trials staff, advanced degree students working in clinical research/ trials as well as trial administrative personnel.


Stakeholder Panels

African American and Hispanic Community Stakeholder Panel discuss their unique constituencies and HOW to reach them

There are three phases to understanding how to recruit African Americans and Hispanic/Latinos into clinical trials: Understanding (1) The Challenge IN YOUR OWN COMMUNITY, in recruiting NOW. Facing (2) The Truth about why more minorities are not in your trials and (3) Looking at what THEY see as a SOLUTION to better, more expanded minority recruitment through utilizing their own COMMUNITY ADVOCACY RECRUITMENT MODEL.

Tampa Stakeholders and Community Leaders

Tampa’s Minority Stakeholders for the CAM Workshop come from many areas of the Tampa community. From Civic to Business to Social to Faith-Based, to Community Advocates to Academic Leaders to Ministers and the minority man/woman on the street. These are the experts. And, each is highly knowledgeable about their constituencies—the people THEY associate with, lead or work with. They understand that each African American or Hispanic/Latino Stakeholder constituency may require a different approach or different motivation to participate in clinical trials. The Stakeholders are guided to utilize a Community Advocacy Recruitment (CAR) Model.
