    Reify Cares is inviting Boston-based health science university students to a Popup Star Event Sunday, April 8th.  Our Master of Ceremonies, Sarah Pribis, will guide us through an afternoon of trivia and education as you may have seen her do while hosting HQ, a popular trivia app.   We will hear a guest speaker share why clinical research matters.  The venue will provide everyone with the opportunities to start or brush up on their knowledge of clinical research.  Through this fun and engaging afternoon, we hope attendees walk away more informed open to considering clinical research as a care option for them or someone around them and/or open to careers in clinical research.`
