How to Use ResearchMatch as a Recruitment Tool
Research Match has a simple goal - to bring together two groups of people who are looking for one another:

1. People trying to find research studies to participate in

2. Researchers who are looking for study participants

During this session researchers will learn step by step how to register and begin utilizing this valuable tool to increase enrollment in their studies.

Attend from your desk or join us in person. Register using this link: https://student.gototraining.com/r/6850108431737965824
