Today we celebrate the International Clinical Trials Day!
It´s the commemoration of the first randomised trial conducted on a board of a ship in 1747 to treat scurvy, by a Scottish physician named James Lind.
Having been involved with clinical research for the past few years, I could not pass this day without doing a homage to all participants and patients for make it possible, and all clinical research staff, scientists and healthcare professionals for their daily commitment and challenges faced when conducting a clinical trial and working within clinical research.
All around the world there will be many celebrations and events, not only to commemorate this day but to also bring people together, to come closer to participants and patients and raise awareness for the importance of clinical research to improve healthcare and most of all to help to demystify some of the public concerns about it.
To everyone fighting to do it better each time…
Happy Clinical Trials Day!
A Doctor in your Pocket
Today as all turns around our health and healthcare awareness I chose to share something different!
Instead of a recipe….an App!
Yes, together with my good friend M, we will tell you about a new App that is here to help us take care of our health, a combination of highly qualified medical professionals of more than 35 different specialities, technology and YOU!

2- If you have children you can add their profiles to yours as well (Yes!)
3- As a welcome pack your first appointment is free
4- Choose the type of appointment (there are different packs with different prices):
