RettEd: Clinical Trial Enrollment Opportunities and Status Update
Dec 10 @ 1:00 pm

Please join us as Tim Benke, MD PhD, Director, Rett syndrome Clinic, Children’s Hospital Colorado, and Rettsyndrome.org Medical Advisor and Paige Nues, Director of Family Empowerment at Rettsyndrome.org to explore the clinical trials landscape outlook for 2020.

This live webcast will be especially helpful to caregivers who are wondering if participating in a clinical trial could be an option for their family and how to become research-ready. We will discuss what clinical trials are enrolling, about to enroll, or have closed enrollment. We will also discuss enrollment criteria, what it means to participate in a trial, and hear from a panelist of parent trailblazers whose children have participated in a Rett syndrome clinical trial to hear how they did it.

Questions and comments submitted in advance will be addressed, and there will be plenty of time for write-in questions during the session.
