This is a collection of videos and stories from people who have volunteered to participate in clinical trials. The stories are from patients with a variety of conditions and from healthy volunteers. The stories tell the personal reasons for participating, the value of participating and reasons why others should consider clinical trial participation.


The National Institutes of Health launched the 'NIH Clinical Research Trials and You' website in Spring, 2012. This growing collection of videos will serve as a useful tool for people who are considering participation in a trial.
