Why did patients apply to this trial?
  • "I am an international medical graduate (IMG) recently migrated to USA from Ethiopia due to current political instability. its been my deepest passion participating on study specially my passion diverted toward dermatology and specifically toward vitiligo. i started to see small with patch on my skin while i was on my second year of med school and which symmetrically started to spread on my body and which honestly created unexplainable mental depression to me as young medical student. people started bulling at me and was very traumatizing moment. after coming to USA currently i joined postgraduation program on clinical research at Harvard medical school, which i believe will help me to boost my passion on research and will give good basic background. at mean time when i see this research trial, i didn't even take time to think more about it. i just started submitting the application form to see whether i am eligible for the program or not. i am willing to be part of this trial as a vitiligo victim as a patient. if i am not eligible for this, please kindly request to be part of it, which i don't really know how but use me in any area of study, let me know if i can fit in any area as a young, energetic and enthusiastic medical doctor. i believe todays research trial will defiantly be tomorrows hope for others who also suffer from vitiligo. thank you."
