Precia Network: A Community-Based Research Model

Building a new, collaborative CRO model with community hospitals and clinics

Precia is increasing the number of women in research studies by establishing the first-of-its-kind network of US and international community hospitals and clinics and engaging women as partners.

We are addressing the critical need to increase research capacity at sites with limited regulatory experience, shortage of qualified clinical research staff, and lack of access to experienced Principal Investigators.  

Health disparities are not uniformly distributed across the country, and, regrettably, areas with poorer health outcomes often have fewer opportunities for women to participate in potentially life-saving research.

At Precia, we are working to bring clinical trials and health solutions to communities that stand to benefit from them the most.

One Site, One Trial: The Results
