    Horizons Clinical Research Center, LLC takes a very active interest in subject recruitment as
    evidenced by the fact that we are often one of the highest enrolling sites for our studies and a number
    of times have been the top enrolling center in the country. One of the factors in our favor is that we
    can enroll volunteers from the Spanish speaking community also. Our recruitment strategy is usually
    determined during the initial regulatory process and activated prior to the initiation visit. In fact, we
    usually have screening visits scheduled in advance of the site initiation in order to get an immediate
    start enrolling volunteers.  

    Recruitment methods:

    Database: We have a constanty growing database consisting of over 15,000 previous study
    volunteers or those who have not pre-qualified for a study but have expressed an interest in being
    contacted for future studies. The Clinical Trials Management System that we use, Clinasyst, allows us
    to extract the best prospective volunteers for a new study based on a number of potential parameters
    such as: gender, age, medical condition, ethnicity, and current medication.

    Volunteer Referrals: A consistent means of recruitment for us is with help from previous study
    volunteers who recommend us to their friends and family. This is particularly true with the Hispanic
    community which is traditionally closer knit and more willing to share with others both their positive
    and negative experiences. We treat all of our study participants with respect and care but quite
    frankly most Hispanics are not accustomed to being treated like VIPs as we do, and they are more
    than willing to tell others about their unexpected and very pleasant experience with our center.

    Media: Our Business Manager, Bill Arnold, is responsible for volunteer recruitment and he has over
    the years developed business relationships with a number of media outlets in the Denver Metro area
    and receives substantial discounts for being a long-standing advertiser, through long term contracts,
    and by often prepaying advertising contracts, which allow us to stretch our advertising budget further.
    We typically use the following types of media:

    Radio (English and Spanish)
    Internet Advertising
    E-mail blasts
    Television (English and Spanish)

    Centralized Recruiting: We have also worked with many central recruitment agencies with both  
    excellent and poor results.  We are unwilling to rely solely on others to provide us with potential
    study participants  so regardless if a study has a central recruitment campaign we will actively recruit
    volunteers ourselves.

    Our cost efficient recruitment efforts consistently produce high enrollment numbers of
    quality study participants.
