The annual Clinical Trials Participation Awards recognizes members of the oncology health community who demonstrate commitment to and belief in and support cancer clinical trials administered by the UH Cancer Center in their practices. They educate their patients about clinical trials as a treatment option and support their registration and participation in clinical trials. The Clinical Trials Participation Awards are made possible through the generosity of the Friends of the UH Cancer Center.
