Clinical research organization Greater Gift will donate $2,000 each to a number of North Carolina charities in honor of patients participating in the COVID-19 Community Research Partnership Study. In addition to the Second Harvest Food Bank, organizations to receive the gifts once their specific benchmarks are reached include The Twenty, theHispanic League, HUSTLE Winston Salem, and Alpha Pi Lambda Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc.
Executive director Lilly Skok Bunch said, “Greater Gift is passionate about engaging underrepresented populations in clinical research and building trustworthiness to populations who traditionally and understandably are reluctant to participate in clinical research. By making donations to support our partners in the community, we hope to build bridges and ultimately trustworthiness across communities.”
