Marcus McCarty-Towers, Patient Recruitment Coordinator, Midwest Clinical Research Center (MCRC)

In this episode, host Mallory Mercer chats with Marcus McCarty-Towers, who is the Patient Recruitment Coordinator at Midwest Clinical Research Center (MCRC), one of the Evolution Research Group sites.

Marcus brings his eclectic experience to MCRC and talks candidly about how having a brother with schizophrenia helped shape his desire to help people. He also discusses his successful outreach strategies — making this a must-listen podcast for the sites out there looking for new ways to engage and recruit patients!

Marcus entered his first year of clinical research in July of 2021. For almost twenty years he was a licensed massage/ neuromuscular therapist where he owned a private practice and provided pain-relief to the patients of various doctors in the industry. Marcus uses his free time serving the community with philanthropic efforts and playing video games.
