Who We Are

To be clear: Who we are is simply a factor of who we have been— from the beginning. Clinical Ambassador is not part of the "Johnny-come-lately" bandwagon of entities that are only now embracing the critical importance of patient diversity in clinical trials. We've been pushing this work uphill since the early nineties, and long before the silver lining of the coronavirus pandemic made diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) trendy.

Despite new, more widespread "wokeness" across the industry— plus the push for more decentralized clinical trials (DCTs) as an "accessibility equalizer"— it could not be more important in today's research representation calculus that we not sacrifice human interaction for the sake of expediency. Human interaction is more important than ever.

Between each of us, we have been in this rarified air for more than four decades. Clinical Ambassador is a team of clinical research professionals and health equity advocates who are passionate about innovative approaches to connecting patients with the right clinical trials and supporting their end-to-end experiences. We love to create fresh ways to communicate big ideas to new audiences. Our corporate remit is to improve the lives of the underrepresented and underserved.

Our team is dedicated to improving the diversity and proportional representation of patients from historically excluded groups in clinical trials. Our capabilities center on providing corporate oversight for embedding representative clinical research principles across the clinical trial lifecycle and designing strategies to evolve the process. Clients that become more knowledgeable about fulfilling inclusivity obligations become better patients, and drive innovative thinking, organizational change, and work with real impact.

Our experience includes public health research consistently focused on racial, ethnic, and gender related disparities in healthcare access and health outcomes.
