New Research Study on PCOS Launched at Yale

Submitted by Angie Thu 01/28/2010

Even though I have never had the opportunity or at least met the criteria for a research study, I am a huge supporter of clinical research studies. Besides the good feeling of contributing to the wider body of medical knowledge, people participating in trials often receive free or reduced medical care, medications, or other tangible benefits. This research study, for example, offers cash and travel costs.
