PHEN launched a national "Clinical Trials Rally" in January 2017 with the goal of increasing the number of African American men participating in prostate cancer clinical trials. The first phase of this effort is to raise the level of knowledge and awareness about clinical trials. This session will provide an update on the results of these activities and explore next steps and strategies towards realizing the Clinical Trials Rally's goal.
