COVID-19 Vaccine Trial and Engaging Diverse Communities – WVON Dr. in the House with Dr. Terry Mason
July 5, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Richard Novak, MD, professor and head of infectious diseases at the University of Illinois College of Medicine, will discuss UIC’s role in testing a new vaccine for COVID-19 on the upcoming “Dr. In The House with Dr. Terry Mason” radio show on WVON.
UIC is expected to be the only site in Chicago selected to launch the phase 3 trial, which is being administered by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease. “UIC has a history of engaging diverse communities in our research programs and I believe our ability to reach the communities that have been hardest hit by the pandemic is one of the reasons that we were selected for this clinical trial,” Novak said.
