RALEIGH, N.C. (June 19, 2017)
As part of its new Center for Pediatric Clinical Development initiative, PRA Health Sciences is pleased to announce its partnership with Jumo. Jumo is an award-winning provider of educational health care information and resources for children, families, and caregivers.
“We are excited about this partnership,” said Mark Sorrentino, Vice President, The Center for Pediatric Clinical Development. “When it comes to pediatric clinical trials, we know that patients and caregivers are fearful and there is often a lack of understanding of what to expect. Jumo’s novel materials aid in the education and engagement of these trials.”
PRA’s new Center for Pediatric Clinical Development which was announced earlier this year is looking to bring innovation to pediatric clinical trial design and implementation and to facilitate patient recruitment. “We look forward to collaborating with PRA and finding new and innovative ways to assist young patients and their families and to help them remain engaged and motivated in clinical trials,” said Kate Hersov, Founder,
A provider of consulting services as well as experienced technical and operational services, The Center for Pediatric Clinical Development team connects PRA’s pediatric expertise across functional areas into a single global resource to support all aspects of client needs related to pediatric product development.
