By the year 2030, the population of BIPOC communities in the United States is projected to represent 44.24 percent.
84 percent of people of color make up the worldwide majority, while caucasian communities only account for 16 percent.
80% - 90%
However, a large majority of those taking part in clinical trials for new medications are disproportionately Caucasian - sometimes as much as 80 to 90 percent.
We are dedicated to forming trusted relationships with BIPOC communities, hinging on four core areas: representation, research, education, and engagement.
We acknowledge the impact of cultural values on the decisions made by people of color in individual, communal, and international contexts.
We are set on creating a system of interaction based on this knowledge and understand that Black, Indigenous, Latinx, and Asian individuals have faith in their own communities.

When my Mom was diagnosed with an unusual lung condition, we started researching potential treatments. We discovered a trial available for her, but it was too far away for her to participate. Seeing my mother's disappointment was a pivotal moment for me. I was a high-ranking executive in the healthcare sector for McKesson, responsible for over 300M in business, and I was still unable to help her. Fortunately, she overcame her illness, which inspired me to create Reveles to ensure that underserved populations can be a part of finding cures for current and future generations.
Innovating the discovery process with a tech-enabled platform while amplifying BIPOC healthcare education and engagement.
