Animation - Lung Cancer Clinical Trials and the US Black Community
This animation provides an overview of the importance of lung cancer clinical trials in the Black American community. For Black men in the United States, lung cancer is the leading cause of death from cancer. It is the second for Black women. Researchers are working hard to develop new ways to screen for, diagnose, and treat lung cancer for everyone. However, they need more Black people to join lung cancer clinical trials in order to truly represent Black people and develop treatments that work well for their genetic makeup. Watch this animation to learn about the importance of Black representation in lung cancer clinical trials, questions to ask about trial participation, the potential benefits and risks of participation, and how lung cancer clinical trials can help the Black community's health now and for future generations.
