Clinical Trials: Making A Difference

To discover more precise ways to screen for and treat cancer, and even find ways to prevent it, researchers rely on clinical trials - research involving people. Dr. Worta McCaskill-Stevens of the National Cancer Institute explains the challenges of ensuring minority populations have access to large-scale clinical trials for cancer. Visit the National Cancer Institute at its headquarters in Bethesda, MD, and then travel to an NCI site in Albuquerque, New Mexico, to meet a doctor conducting a clinical trial, and the breast cancer patient who is participating in it.
