Our Mission is to raise awareness about the role of clinical trials in advancing medical science and healthcare
Clinical trials have the potential to benefit people’s health and can provide options in circumstances where treatment choices are limited or there are none.
We are delivering on this mission through a variety of initiatives that encourage listening, learning, collaborating, networking and sharing.
Your Voice Your Story 2022
Sometimes it is difficult to put feelings into words. White Coats Foundation invites people to express their “Voice” by creating a picture, painting, symbol or sending in a photo that represents what clinical trials mean to them.
We had extremely positive feedback from those that participated in the 2021 Your Voice, Your Story event. The ability for people to express themselves artistically and creatively was both therapeutic and satisfying for the person participating and informative and inspirational for the viewers.
Your Voice, Your Story has become part of our annual events calendar and once again we will present entries in an online gallery & a select number of entries will be invited to share their stories in a webinar on International Clinical Trial Days, May 20th.
We continue to welcome entries from the general public, patients, family members, health care professionals and industry professionals. We want to connect with ALL communities, a diverse range of people and cultures.

The Power of One - November 1st to 7th
The 2021 Power of One campaign has now ended. Join us in 2022 and let see what the Power of One can do!
The 2021 Power of One campaign exceeded expectations on an awareness and engagement level. WCF also raised enough funds again to support a $5000 Grant. The 2021 research options were Mental Health, Rare Cancers and Neurology & the preferred category, as nominated by our donators, was Neurology.

The discussion, questions and feedback throughout both webinars was passionate, inspiring and led to some interesting perspectives which we now share as a ‘Reflections Paper’- summarising key messages, recommendations and next steps from the series.
