Digital Tool co-creation to Encourage Equitable Lupus Research Participation
$45K Finalists

Ensuring more inclusive participation in clinical trials is critical to achieving national health equity goals. These challenges are accentuated for Lupus, a disease that disproportionately impacts racial and ethnic minorities. To address this challenge, this project will co-create, prototype, and conduct initial user pilot testing of a digital tool with Lupus patients, caregivers, and advocates. The objective is to build a tool to help educate, match, and connect young adult minorities to Lupus trials.
