"Health equity is not just a catchphrase for us. It's the driving force behind every initiative,” said Tiffany Whitlow, chief development officer and co-founder at Acclinate. “We believe in a future where health outcomes are not predetermined by ethnicity but rather shaped by inclusive and representative research."
