Heartland Research Referral Program

Advancing Medicine ... Changing Lives

You don’t have to be a research volunteer to Be A Part of the Solution. Telling your friends and family about clinical research trials allows you to play your part in advancing medicine.

For each qualified referral you could receive $50.


To qualify for the referral program, your referral must:

  • Mention your name during the prescreening process with a Heartland Research Patient Referral Specialist.
  • Your referral must qualify and randomize into the study for which they were referred.
