Clinical Trials Day: Celebrating Our Passionate Clinical Research Staff
May 20th is a significant day for us at IMA Clinical Research as we celebrate Clinical Trials Day – a day dedicated to recognizing the essential role of clinical trials in advancing medical knowledge and improving patient care. On this occasion, we want to share with you the heart and soul behind our organization: the passionate clinical researchers who are dedicated to helping find innovative solutions for individuals facing healthcare challenges.
We are thrilled to bring you an exclusive video featuring interviews with just a couple of our passionate team members. Through their words, you will witness the unwavering commitment to providing the best care possible and making a profound impact on the lives of those they serve.
Our Patient-Centered Approach
At IMA Clinical Research, our providers are more than clinical trial professionals. They are compassionate individuals who genuinely care about the well-being of every patient they encounter. We understand the challenges faced by those who lack access to medical care or have exhausted various treatment options without finding relief. Alyssa Boschen, Regional Director of Clinical Research Operations, who recounted a patient’s transformative journey, “This patient did not have any access to medical care, did not have access to any treatment of any kind, and they were experiencing their first depressive episode…I will never forget him…he ended up participating in our trial…and just in that short period of time, he was able to completely turn his life around.”
Fueling Passion Through Success
The successes of our participants fuel the passion of our providers, strengthening their resolve to make a difference. Alyssa Boschen still remembers the impact one memorable patient had on her, saying, “Every month, I would get a phone call from that patient just saying “Oh my gosh, thank you so much”…to give us an update on how great his life is going. I remember distinctly being involved with the patient and seeing the entire 180 he did…being involved in his care. That entire time I was hooked…I’m going to stay in clinical research.”
Finding Innovative Solutions
Our providers are driven in their pursuit of innovative solutions to address the challenging and widespread healthcare issues faced by our community. Dr. Subha Clarke, Principal Investigator emphasized the importance of tackling debilitating conditions, stating, “I think we are seeing a lot of obesity trials, and I have to say that’s a really good thing. Obesity affects so many systems…I find that kind of research [is] really important, and I’m glad we’re undertaking it.”
Improving Patient Access
With clinical sites spanning the nation, we are committed to ensuring that our services are accessible to anyone in need. Our commitment to expanding clinical trials across different regions and extending into diverse communities enables us to reach individuals who may otherwise have limited opportunities for healthcare advancements. “I like people,” stated Dr. Charles Andrews from IMA San Antonio. “When you’re doing clinical research, your given effort has the potential to help a lot more persons than it can on an individual basis. In other words, you can affect major populations.”
As Clinical Trial Day approaches, we invite you to join us in celebrating the remarkable work being done across the clinical research industry. Through our clinical research studies, we strive to make a difference by bringing new treatments and innovative solutions to patients who need them most.
Through our video interviews, you will witness firsthand the passion and dedication of our providers, whose tireless efforts are changing lives. Mireya Medina, Albuquerque Site Director, expresses her excitement about what the future holds for IMA Clinical Research, saying, “I’ve worked on many different clinical trials and what makes me passionate about this career is having the unique opportunity of being part of making a difference to people’s lives. Collaborating with my colleagues, and community leaders and we can’t forget the amazing volunteers working together towards improving and advancing medical care make a career in this field extremely rewarding.”
