The AllTrials Community is a diverse and inclusive group of individuals who care about improving clinical research and medicine. We create and share AllTrials Community Resources including advocacy toolkits, curriculum, presentations, and informational resources. We support each other through the AllTrials Community Forum. We know that advancing better research policies and practices in our communities requires effective communication and strategic advocacy, so we offer free training through the AllTrials Train-the-Trainer Workshop. Participants graduate with the practice, resources, and community of support they need to improve their advocacy skills and to similarly train their peers.
