Here’s What Volunteers Are Saying…

Tuesday, January 9th, 2018

We are very grateful for all of our research volunteers.  At the conclusion of each study, we ask our volunteers to take the time to fill out a survey and let us know how we’re doing.  We pride ourselves on treating our patients with the highest level of professionalism and respect, all while providing quality study-related health care.

Recently M. of Norwich noted the study she participated in was to her body what “love is to the soul.”  (Wow…her words!)  S. of Mystic described our site as “friendly and comfortable.”  She continued, “I”ll do it again.” D. of North Stonington noted, “It was fascinating to me. I learned a lot.”

Our volunteers are at the heart of what we do.  Thank you to all those who participate in clinical trials at Coastal Connecticut Research. We are most grateful for your time and for your valued feedback!

If you curious about research, or have participated in a trial and want to share your experiences, contact us at (860) 443-4567. You can also email

Give of Yourself this Holiday Season!

Thursday, December 14th, 2017

Are you feeling a bit overwhelmed and depleted?  Has the tin cup been passed around a little too much this holiday season?  Do you have donor fatigue?  Believe it not, there might be a way you could feel better. How?
VOLUNTEER! Clinical trials are now enrolling at Coastal Connecticut Research in New London.

Studies have shown people who volunteer actually feel better. It creates what is called the “happiness effect.”  During this season of giving, consider sharing your time to help advance medical research.  Volunteer for a clinical research study.  You’ll receive study-related health care at no cost, no cost study medication, and, reimbursement for time and travel is available.  Best of all, by participating in research, you can help to advance knowledge about new ways to treat existing diseases and conditions.

So, instead of just taking out your checkbook and making out yet another donation, add to the warm fuzzy feeling by donating your time to research. Volunteers do make a difference!

Volunteering and the Happiness Effect

Tuesday, June 28th, 2016

Admit it – at one time or another you may have let out the occasional grown when asked to participate in yet another volunteer activity.  Here’s some good news- volunteering can be good for your health!

According to an article published in US News & World Report, those who volunteer may experience the following:

1. Understanding: the desire to learn new things and acquire knowledge.

2. Esteem enhancement: feeling better about yourself and finding greater stability in life.

3. Personal development: acquiring new skills, testing your capabilities, and stretching yourself.

4. Sense of community: making the world, or your piece of it, better.

5. Humanitarian values: serving and helping others, often with a strong religious component.

Volunteers are needed at Coastal Connecticut Research in New London.  Volunteers help others by participating in clinical research.  There is no cost to participate, no cost for the investigational medication or, if applicable, the investigational device, and all study-related exams, labs and testing are provided at no cost.  No insurance is needed to participate in a clinical trial.
