Volunteer


Recruiting participants for studies and engaging with the community are what make the research we do possible. Volunteers enable us to carry out our critical mission here at the Hope Clinic.

Volunteer and Make a Difference in Atlanta

Volunteers help us carry out our mission here at the Hope Clinic. Opportunities include:

  1. Participating in a Research Study in Atlanta: We like to say that our clinical research trial volunteers and donors are heroes. Their commitment and altruism are instrumental in advancing health and preventing disease. Please join us in our quest to improve health and defeat life-threatening infections by volunteering for a clinical research study. We are currently enrolling volunteers in Atlanta and the greater Atlanta area into our clinical research trials. Volunteers receive compensation for all study visits.
  2. Participation in our CAB (Community Advisory Board): The CAB is a diverse group of community members committed to the development and implementation of vaccine trials and disease prevention.  We value the insight and feedback that we gain from our CAB members.  They represent the communities we would like to engage in our studies.

Volunteer FAQ

In this section we answer common questions that volunteers may have about participating in a research study with the Hope Clinic.

  • Contact one of our staff and they will complete a phone consent and a phone screen questionnaire with you to determine which study you would be a good match for. 
  • If you are eligible for a study after completing the questionnaire the recruiter will schedule a screen appointment with you.  
  • You will receive an e-mail verification of your appointment, directions to our clinic and the consent form to review before your visit.

  • When you first arrive you will fill out contact information and a basic medical questionnaire provided at the front desk.  
  • You will then meet with the study coordinator to review the consent form and answer any questions that you may have about the research study.  
  • The study coordinator will review your medical history, check your vital signs, draw blood, and ask for a urine sample.  
  • Finally you will have a physical exam with one of our physicians on staff. 

Volunteers are paid to volunteer for a research study at the Hope Clinic.  This amount varies depending on the study but typically ranges from $25 to $75 per visit.

  • You will need to bring your ID to your appointment.  
  • Make to sure to eat a good breakfast the day of your appointment and drink plenty of water the day before and the day of your appointment.  
  • Arrive 10 minutes before your scheduled visit.

  • The study coordinator will contact you with your next steps once the results of the blood and urine tests are back.  This may be approximately 1 week after your screening visit.
  • If you match the study criteria you will be scheduled for an additional screening appointment or an enrollment visit.
  • If you do not match the study criteria, we will ask to keep your name and number in our database to contact for future studies.
