Women's Health and Clinical Trials:

From hormones to heart disease, we've heard frequent reports of new women's health research studies with promising results this year.  But most women do not know why participating in clinical trials is important.  We asked Phyllis Greenberger, President of the Society for Women's Health Research in Washington DC to comment on this.

"Women need to take charge of their health and improve the health of future generations through medical research.  And women are needed for research studies, because we know that men and women are different...and it is only through women's participation that we will we be able to find the answers."

So how does a woman find out how to participate in a clinical trial?

"There are several ways women can get information about clinical trials and research, but one of the one's that we would recommend is going to womancando.com.  And that's a site that talks about what you need to know in terms of going into research, what questions you need to ask, how you protect yourself from problems, and how you can find research studies that you might want to participate in".

Many women who have participated in clinical trials say it was the best thing they ever did for their health.
