A Crucial Conversation-starter: CSC’s New Docuseries Explores Justified Medical Mistrust - Resources from Cancer Support Community (CSC)

Racial disparities in health and healthcare have been longstanding in the United States. These disparities extend to cancer clinical trials, where participants continue to be disproportionately White. Justified medical mistrust helps explain, in part, underrepresentation in clinical trials from communities of color ― communities that have historically experienced mistreatment in healthcare and clinical research. 

As part of our ongoing efforts to eliminate health disparities and inequities, CSC is producing a 6-part short documentary film series titled “Justified Medical Mistrust: Acknowledging the Past to Change the Future.”  

The first film in the series “How Does a Clinical Trial Benefit ME?” is now streaming. The second video, “Righting the Wrongs: What is the Medical Community Doing Within Communities of Color to Gain Trust?” is slated for a fall 2023 release.
