A Hot Flash Story

Have hot flashes impacted your multi-tasking?

Once upon a time there was a lady who had been through menopause suffering with hot flashes.  She had to throw the covers off her at night due to such profuse sweating and during the day, constantly fanned herself to stay cool. One day, the woman heard a radio commercial about a clinical research study enrolling in New London evaluating a product for women with hot flashes.  She called the site, answered some questions over the phone, and learned she qualified for the study. But alas, the lady was hesitant to participate. She was a bit uneasy about trying something that was not yet available for prescription.  She said she had to think about it, and so she did.  The lady told one of the members of the CCRstudies team at the research site she was a bit uneasy. After learning more about the study product and the design of the study, she felt better informed. She even learned one of the products she took everyday had been evaluated in the past at the very same sight!  The lady had never thought twice about taking this product and realized people like her must have participated in a clinical trial in order for the medication to gain FDA approval. This changed her way of thinking – she decided she too wanted to help others.  It was no longer just about her hot flashes, but rather, she gained a greater understanding of the importance of being a research volunteer.  The lady had already found her prince years ago, she wasn’t very concerned about that sort of happy ending. What made more of a difference to her was the fact she could ultimately impact someone else’s life by participating in a clinical trial.
