About the Research Clinic
We began our clinical research journey in 2018, and it is our goal to continue to provide access to clinical research studies to our patients and our community. Our main focus is women's health and maternal studies, but we also have support from investigators in Gastroenterology, Internal Medicine, and Pediatrics, and will continue to seek trials that benefit the population that we serve.
