As part of the ‘It’s OK to Ask’ campaign, the Health Research Board (HRB) Clinical Research Facility Galway (CRFG) will open its doors and welcome the public on September 1st from 4:00- 7:00 PM. The event will include short, accessible talks about specific clinical trials, a self-guided CRFG tour, and ten thematic exhibitions highlighting areas of research and ongoing clinical studies. Explainers, including consultants and CRFG staff will be on hand to answer questions and describe their work. Concurrently, short expert talks will be delivered by Professor John J Carey, Professor Dr. Andrew Murphy, and Professor Frank Barry in the Clinical Sciences Institute Large Lecture Theatre (227).

Launched in May, ‘It’s OK to Ask’ is an on-going public awareness initiative that aims to encourage patients, carers, and the public to ask healthcare professionals if there is a clinical trial study they might be suitable for. Through the ’It’s OK to ask’ campaign, periodic exhibitions in the UHG foyer, themed social media blitzes, and public events are planned.
