Keynote: The Power of Global Diversity in Clinical Trials

Clinical trials often face challenges in recruiting a diverse group of participants, which can limit the generalizability of the results. This is particularly true in countries like Guatemala, where the clinical trial and healthcare landscape can present unique challenges.

In this session, we will explore the importance of clinical trials and healthcare for the population in Guatemala, and why inclusion in clinical trials is crucial for people who travel to other countries. We will discuss the challenges and opportunities in conducting clinical trials in Guatemala, including regulatory considerations, ethical considerations, and cultural differences.
