May 20 is International Clinical Trials Day and is a day to celebrate everyone involved in clinical trials. It also provides an opportunity to raise awareness of the vital role it plays in healthcare.

On 20 May 1747, James Lind started what is often considered the first randomised clinical trial aboard a ship to determine the cause of scurvy.

It was great to see the faces of SA Health Clinical Trials teams posing for photos recognising the day.
