Overview

Health Awareness, Inc. began conducting clinical trials in 1999, and has since completed hundreds of successful studies at our two locations in Jupiter and Port St. Lucie, Florida.

We have a track record of meeting and exceeding enrollment goals. We are often a Top-10 performing site, and, in many cases, we have been the #1 enrolling site in the nation!

We are careful to pursue only studies that align with our sites’ capabilities and patient population, thereby avoiding under enrollment and reducing risk for both our Sponsors and our CRO’s.

We have extensive experience conducting clinical trials in a wide array of therapeutic areas and indications, and we welcome the opportunity to work in new ones as well.

We have established lasting relationships with local specialists and medical facilities to coordinate almost any type of clinical trial.

We always welcome the opportunity to be the first site to screen for a study. In order to facilitate rapid study start-up, we utilize Central IRB’s, Central Labs, and have a quick review and turnaround time for Contract negotiation and Regulatory documents.

Our highly-experienced staff includes our Principal Investigators, local physician Sub-Investigators, Clinical Research Coordinators, Data Entry and Quality Assurance Specialists, as well as a team of dedicated on-site Recruitment Specialists, who utilize a dynamic, searchable clinical trial management software containing more than 21,000 potential subjects who have opted-in to be contacted about clinical trials.

Our support staff includes: Business Development, Contracts, Regulatory & Financial Administration, and Management.

Health Awareness is a modern research facility focused on excellent patient care and outstanding study coordination.

Our staff is committed to offering the highest quality and integrity in clinical trials, following all Good Clinical Practices.

We are committed to the maintenance of quality data throughout study conduct, and know that quality data is the most important output of any study, so we move every chart through a quality assurance process to ensure accuracy and completeness.
