Kids giving back to kids: Children in medical research #1

Editor’s note: This week and next, we will be doing a series on how kids can give back to other kids.One huge way kids are giving back to kids is by taking part in medical research studies. If you’re a research subject, or the parent of one, you already know that you’re mainly helping not yourself, but generations of kids to come — so that researchers can better understand the disease and find new and better treatments. In this video, the first of several posts about children in medical research, kids and parents talk about their experiences volunteering for a study and what they hope to gain. It was shot in Children’s Clinical and Translational Study Unit, our own “research central.”
