Episode #11: You Might Find the Cheapest Medication Works the Best (and why diversity in research is important)

Like our host Dr. Naresh Gunaratnam, Dr. John Carethers from the University of Michigan knew he wanted to be a physician from a young age.

But Dr. Carethers journey took him into a career in academia, because he felt that it would be the best way to positively affect the most lives – through research and in training students to become GI physicians.

Join Dr. Gunaratnam to hear about Dr. Carethers work on the American Association for Cancer Research Cancer Disparities Progress Report, how diversity in research benefits health care, and what GI practices can do to increase diversity in their own clinical trials.
