Try Me

US Federal law requires that every medication must go through a series of clinical research trials before being approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for consummation. In addition, approval is required by an independent Research Ethics Board. It is said that Clinical research trials are critical in the advancement of medicine and making available new and helpful medications. However, this involves a myriad of health care issues that are raging in the US and they are so complicated, no one understands them.

Talking about understanding, I can't understand this billboard because it's in Spanish! That's the price I pay to live in Miami, so I looked it up. This is near the huge Jackson medical complex in Miami (which is having huge financial problems,) advertising for a clinical trial research outfit. If you are female, and you are experiencing hot flashes while in menopause, they want you. A warning though, everything has a cost so you really need to be knowledgeable in order to navigate the health care systems in this country, especially when you need the use of medication.
