We were honored to have been able to interview Dr Jenny Yip, of the Renewed Freedom Center in Los Angeles, CA. Dr Yip’s company specializes in studying and researching on all things related to Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, as well as anxiety in children as well as adults. It’s very interesting to learn that the type of clinical trials Dr Yip conducts are not studies which test medications, but rather, they test the effectiveness of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). In other words, by joining a CBT trial, there is no medication to test, but rather, specific therapies are tested that involve cognitive tests, very much like mental exercises that Dr Yip’s patients would undergo. Here is another example of how diverse the clinical trials industry really is!

Today we interviewed Dusty Showers, also known as Dusty Showers the 2nd Basemen.

In today’s post, Don goes to a residential facility where he typically recruits from for his clinical trials, an runs into a man there who has never participated in a clinical trial before. We thought it would be insightful to get Jason’s thoughts on what he thinks clinical trials are all about and put them on video so others can learn from him as Jason and Don discuss the topic of clinical research. It is always interesting to hear from people who do not have any prior exposure to clinical trials in order to get a sense for what their preconceptions are in regards to clinical trials.
