Participant Recruitment & Retention Support

The Participant Recruitment & Retention Program of the Johns Hopkins Institute for Clinical and Translational Research, established in 2007, offers investigators and research teams training, consultation, and a toolkit of evidence-based, field-tested recruitment practices.
