Since writing the blog post entitled, “Jean Burns, Parkinson’s, and The Risk of Undertaking a Clinical Trial” (which you can read below), Jean started a petition.  You can find the petition here and we ask that you get involved and sign it.

On July 19, 2016 Steve Sternberg wrote in U.S. News & World Report an article entitled, “In Research World, Long-Term Injury Care Hard to Come By, ethicists call for a national plan to care for injured research volunteers.”  We encourage everyone to read this provocative piece along with his prior article, “Undertake a Clinical Trial at Your Own Risk.”

Let us hear from you about this important topic!
