Sponsors MMG is a global patient recruitment and retention group founded in 1987 to help patients, caregivers, and health care professionals navigate the complex world of clinical trials offered by the National Cancer Institute (NCI), pharmaceutical, biotech and medical device companies. We also work with global and national patient advocacy groups to help individuals connect with clinical trials across all therapeutic areas. Our goal is to better understand what patients face as they make their decisions for clinical trial participation, which is why we are so excited to create this forum. We have made a science out of developing strategies that accelerate patient enrollment, achieve participant retention goals, and raise awareness for hundreds of trials around the globe. The commitment that founded our company is present in everything we do to support clinical research. We are MMG, and we get patients. For more information please visit www.mmgct.com.
