Benefit Audioconferences Raise $5,000
In three interactive audioconferences in January 2006, the Clinical Research Relief Organization (CRRO) raised $5,000 to benefit Hurricane Katrina victims in the clinical research industry. Three speakers — Alicia Pouncey, Kenneth Kratz, and William Smith — provided their perspectives and advice on disaster preparation and mitigation for sponsors, sites and IRBs. Over 150 site, sponsor, CRO and IRB personnel attended each conference, an average of five per telephone connection.
