Clinical Research

Be a part of the forefront of reproductive and sexual health care by participating in a clinical research study with Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest and the Hawaiian Islands.

New and Better Care

When you volunteer for a clinical trial at Planned Parenthood, you’re helping clinicians, scientists, and researchers develop new treatments and medications to better care for people.

A clinical trial is a research study that might test the effectiveness of a new form of birth control or method of providing health care. As a volunteer participant of any study, your safety and comfort is our top priority. All of our research projects are overseen by an independent committee to ensure you’re informed of the risks and benefits of participating and that you’re rights are protected. We want you to be fully informed about all aspects of a study before and during your involvement. And you can always end your participation at any time.
