Make your comments and suggestions heard as NIH plans the follow-up to the 2017 Inclusion Across the Lifespan workshop, the Inclusion Across the Lifespan II (IAL-II) workshop that will focus on the recruitment and retention of pediatric, geriatric, and other underrepresented participants in clinical studies.

NIH is particularly interested in hearing about challenges to enrollment of individuals of all ages in clinical research studies and strategies for including other underrepresented populations that were not addressed in the first workshop (e.g., sex/gender minorities, racial/ethnic minorities, people with disabilities, rural/isolated populations, language minority individuals, pregnant and lactating women, and others who are not well- represented in clinical research). 

Submit your comments via email to NIAplanning@mail.nih.gov before February 15, 2020. For more details, see the full Guide Notice.
