This study is a brief questionnaire (survey) that will ask you for your thoughts about things that can prevent and treat COVID-19 (for example, clinical trials, vaccines, and hand-washing). It is completely anonymous. We will not collect any identifying data about you whatsoever. You do not need to have had COVID-19 or even know anything about it to take the survey. We just want to know what you think. The survey is multiple choice.
We want to learn about the best ways to present information about COVID-19 treatment. We are doing interviews and focus groups with communities of color to find out what messaging would be useful and acceptable to their communities.
I aim to examine the impacts of remote schooling on the racial/ethnic achievement gaps in Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools and what mechanisms led to this impact. My study will help map how the switch to remote schooling during the COVID-19 pandemic impacted student achievement, particularly for students from marginalized backgrounds as compared to privileged students.
The COVID-19 pandemic has led to uncertainty in the lives of many individuals. This has become a stressor, especially for college students, due to illness, job insecurity, lack of social interaction, etc. We are interested in studying the effects of the pandemic on eating behaviors, overall health and lifestyle of Asian-identifying college students. Asian-identifying individuals make up one of the smallest demographics in diagnosed disordered eating but one of the largest demographics to self-report disordered eating. We hope to uncover the effects that this pandemic has had on disordered eating behaviors in this particular demographic to add to the present literature and find potential connections between COVID-19, disordered eating, and various cultures.
Physicians are at risk for high rates of depression, substance abuse, suicide, and burnout, an occupational phenomenon resulting from chronic workplace stress. New working conditions imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic have exacerbated these occupational health burdens for physicians at a time when baseline levels of stress, burnout, and poor mental health were already overwhelmingly high.This onslaught of new (and potentially recurrent) acute stressors on top of chronic stress presents crisis of occupational health and moral integrity for physicians. There is an important need to (1) characterize the relationship between pandemic workplace conditions and adverse health outcomes (e.g. fatigue, stress, burnout, mental illness) and (2) identify work practices and organizational characteristics that promote occupational health and wellbeing and reduce the risk of such outcomes. To respond to these urgent and ongoing needs, we propose a novel exploratory study of the occupational wellbeing of physicians working on the front line of COVID-19 care.
The purpose of this research study is to understand how COVID-19 affected child care access in Durham and how child care impacts parents/guardians. We hope to use these insights to better inform policies designed to support caregivers and improve access to affordable child care.
The purpose of this study is to survey pediatric mental health providers and their perception of COVID-19 educational disruption on their pediatric patients.
We will identify changes in the numbers, seriousness, and outcomes of breast cancers diagnosed during the COVID-19 pandemic, compared to before the pandemic.
This study asks participants about their pre-pandemic, current, and expected post-pandemic behaviors to better understand long-term societal changes that may occur as a result of the pandemic. The study focuses on transportation-related outcomes.
