SHARE's New Clinical Trial Matching Service
Looking for information about clinical trials? Visit SHARE's new clinical trial matching service and find trials that fit your unique profile. 

We're so glad to be able to offer this service in collaboration with Emerging Med! 

Attn: Latina Patients and Survivors!
SHARE is looking for Latina breast cancer patients to apply for a study! The study evaluates the impact of support groups for caregivers. 

If you're chosen, you and your caregiver will participate in 8 two-hour sessions addressing pain management, anger management, sexuality, spirituality, and other topics. Meals will be provided. 

This is a unique way for you to get support, and it will help the medical community better understand how to serve Latino populations. The study is being funded by the Patient Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI), a nonprofit organization authorized by Congress.

Please contact Olympia Cepeda at 212.221.1750 if you're interested in applying or learn more about the study on SHARE's blog.
