The training methodology is through exposure, ideas and Q&A exchange between Clinical Professionals and the Community Stakeholders, Patients Health Ministry and Community Leaders on the panel.  The Luncheon is open to other invited Community Leaders, who will participate in the open discussion segment of the  " Solution.” There will also be opportunities for participants to follow-up.


6. Will I have a chance to present information about my clinical trial at the CAM Luncheon Workshop?

Yes, there will be an opportunity at the end of the program for clinical trial presentation. Because of limited time, clinical trial presentations will be on a first reserve, first come basis.  However, because of the continuation of the training activities for up to 60 days following the program, you will have other opportunities to present and provide materials to the minority communities if you follow our Community Advocacy training suggestions.


7. When can I get the results of the workshops ?

In order to receive your Certificate of Completion, Clinical participants will need to hand in all three (3) 2-sided) sheets.

11. What opportunity exists for networking?

The Cam Luncheon and Workshop affords many opportunities for clinical professionals to exchange ideas with stakeholders, health ministries, community leaders and patients. The entire program is relaxed and open and encourages a meaningful exchange with our community leaders. We hope to make Tampa one example of successful trial recruitment and retention through Community Advocacy.


12. May I invite business associates?

Yes. The CAM Luncheon Workshop is open to medical professionals, community leaders, family members and patients who want to participate in the open exchange of ideas. You must RSVP your guests no later than April 3, 2015 or when you register.


13. What is the purpose of this program?

There are several purposes of the Community Advocacy MATCHMAKING Program. Paramount is to help clinical professionals increase understanding, build trust, better recruit and retain and more African Americans and Hispanic patients. The CAM Stakeholder Panel will help guide you through the purpose for each segment, and will each give you “Real-Time” understanding of recruiting in their communities IMMEDIATELY!  How? Through the discovery of three goals:

The Challenge: African Americans and Hispanic/Latinos are under represented in many clinical trials related to disease therapies that are critical to their health.

The Truth:  Our surveys show that many minorities know that new drug discoveries could change their lives. Face-to-Face Surveys conducted nation-wide show that nearly 52% of African Americans do not participate in clinical trials because they do not KNOW about the trials.

The Solution:  The Community Advocacy MATCHMAKING Stakeholders panel teaches CRPs how to target LOCAL communities for disease therapy education, and the best way to RECRUIT minorities for clinical trials while building trust through the Stakeholders who will guide them.


14. Will the results of the research for this project be published into Journals? Will we have access to your findings?

We will submit our findings to Journals of the Community Advocacy MATCHMAKING Luncheon Workshops for several cities once we have comparative data. Tampa is one of our Premier cities, and though there may be community comparisons within Tampa we hope to measure communities, cities and regions for a national study.

Annual results will be published in the 50 Hoops 2015 Annual Report.


15. What is the Ultimate Goal?

GOAL Summary: To amp up your sensitivity to how best to approach various disease therapies within different minority constituencies.

The Clinical Research Professionals attending the CAM, along with Community Leaders immediately develop new (Tampa-based) strategies for recruiting in minority communities. CAM hopes to help open doors to a more cohesive exchange between Clinical Investigators and the African American and Hispanic/Latino Communities.  The Luncheon Workshop allows Clinicians to explore specific ways to bring education of trial disease to patients, stakeholders, and community and health leaders. It offers an opportunity for CRPs to begin to RECRUIT within Stakeholder constituencies. CAM is always held in an environment and level that the community understands.
