If you’re looking for ways to earn extra cash on the side (or, more hiply, a “side hustle”), you can get paid to participate in a clinical trial. This involves becoming a test subject for medical research studies, where labs try out new drugs and treatments.
Being a subject in a clinical trial isn’t for everyone — you’ll always want to consider the risk — and you should definitely read the fine print before signing on. Note: While some trials may not require that you have specific health issues, others will.
