Engage Patients!

"The FORCE advocates provided invaluable feedback on my research study and survey materials. They brought up issues that I hadn't considered, helped me clarify my research goals, and led me to refine the questions that I asked participants. Having patients involved in the research process changed my study for the better.” - Claire Conley, PhD, Assistant Professor, Georgetown University
