Diversity, Equity & Inclusion in Research.

Women’s health, specifically pregnancy, is one of the most important, yet neglected, research areas of human health and wellness. It’s our mission to help prevent Preeclampsia, Gestational diabetes, Preterm birth, Stillbirth and Maternal and Neonatal sepsis. It’s one reason we started Precia.

The other reason is to help community health systems take part in more clinical research studies and trials. Why ask patients to drive far for research studies & treatments? Often, they won’t. Which means a less diverse & representative patient population. This makes studies less meaningful. We make studies more meaningful. And, save lives & improve health for women, newborns and children. By working with Preica, you can feel good about investing your R&D dollars into community health care systems.
