Free Seminar: Treatment-Resistant Depression

  • Great Lakes Clinical Trials

LEARN MORE ABOUT TREATMENT-RESISTANT DEPRESSION

Unfortunately, depression treatments don't always work. As many as two-thirds of people with depression aren't helped by the first antidepressant they try. Up to a third don't respond to several attempts at treatment.

Treatment-resistant depression (TRD) can leave you feeling hopeless and discouraged. Months or even years can go by without any relief. And after the effort it took to get help, it can be demoralizing when you're just not getting better.

American Daughters of Sweden Event: What Clinical Trials Mean to You!

Steve Satek, President of Great Lakes Clinical Trials will be a featured presenter at the September 12, 2015 meeting of the American Daughters of Sweden being held at the Swedish American Museum in Chicago.

Though many people may not realize it, all medications must be approved through a clinical trial process before they become available by prescription.   It is estimated that there are almost 200,000 studies of new medications are currently being conducted in 190 countries and in all 50 States. Notably, Sweden has long been a highly-respected location in conducting clinical trials and leads in the world in terms in medical publications per capita.   This talk will provide a clear understanding of how medications across the globe obtain approval for prescription.  Individuals will also learn how they might benefit from being in a clinical trial and how they can help others in need of new medications,

Founded in 1926, the American Daughters of Sweden was initially organized to foster and encourage an interest in the culture of Sweden both in women born in Sweden as well as in American-born women with Swedish ancestors.  The organization has, over the past 80 plus years, awarded hundreds of scholarships to the University of Chicago, North Park University, Augustana College, and Concordia Language Village forgirls to learn the Swedish language.
