The NRG-CC005 team recorded a video at the NRG Summer meeting in June of 2022 to answer the question: “Why would your site want to be a part of the FORTE Clinical Trial?” We encourage site staff to distribute this internally to encourage participation at your institution among research professionals in the conduct of the FORTE trial. You could send the link to this video to:

  • Physicians (especially GI doctors), nurse practitioners, registered nurses
