Sharing Art and Stories to Honor Clinical Trial Participants

Hero’s Journey Art Piece

ADAPTABLE patient partners participated in the Hero’s Journey art project. Sponsored by Eli Lilly, the national art project involves more than 1,000 participants and is intended to honor clinical trial participants and raise awareness of clinical trials.

In conjunction with Health eHeart Alliance, ADAPTABLE’s patient partners crafted the quote “Better health outcomes for all when patients partner with researchers” to represent their involvement in clinical research.

The brick is part of an eight-foot tall, egg-shaped, lighted sculpture that will be part of art exhibits across the country. The first sculpture, “Departure” is on display at an exhibit in LiveSTRONG Headquarters in Austin Texas. The second sculpture is part of an art exhibit in Indianapolis, Indiana. You can follow the art and join the conversation online using #herosjourneyart.

“ADAPTABLE is a best-in-class example of how to incorporate meaningful patient engagement in a clinical trial,” said Holly Robertson, PhD, ADAPTABLE Study project lead. “It’s exciting to be a part of a study that is transforming clinical research.”
