Brett is a student at Northwest Missouri State University majoring in Graphic Design, currently on summer break. This is his first time volunteering in a clinical trial.
What made you decide to participate in a study?
I tried to get a summer internship and nothing panned out. I had heard about Quintiles from some friends at school and decided to participate as an alternative to a summer job. I will be making more in 21/2 weeks here than I did all last summer.
What did you know about Quintiles and clinical research before participating?
Mainly what had heard from friends. I did a lot of research on the internet about clinical research and Quintiles before I decided to volunteer; I wanted to make sure that it was a legit operation. After I passed screening and they told me what kind of medication that I would be taking I also researched that to find out side effects and what other research had been done. I found a lot of material on the internet and felt very well informed coming in to the study.
What are your overall feelings about Quintiles?
It's a nice environment. The staff is very friendly and they take good care of everyone. Participating has also reinforced that I am a healthy person. I like to think be healthy, stay healthy.
