El Rio Research Statement:
El Rio Health partners with a variety of agencies to collaborate on important research investigations to improve the health and wellness of our community. The research committee at El Rio Health has the fiduciary responsibility to ensure that our patients are not subject to unethical or exploitative research practices. To this end we require all research efforts to be formally reviewed by our committee for approval. The El Rio research committee is not an IRB, and we rely on external IRB approval as one element of our review. El Rio cannot dedicate any internal resources for logistics support or data support for non-funded external research projects.
