Hero Stories

Making a difference in the future of health care 

Everyone who's volunteered for a clinical study has a story to tell. A story about why they made the effort. What they hoped to accomplish. What they learned. And how the experience changed them. We call these volunteers heroes because they're helping scientists - who are heroes in their own right - find cures, improve quality of life, and move health research forward. Watch as the following heroes share their inspiring stories about making a difference in the future of health care.
