The purpose of this study is to understand the perspectives of middle schoolers as they have navigated schooling during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Have you been infected with COVID-19? Are you a solid organ transplant recipient? Have you or your child received a COVID-19 vaccine or are planning to receive one? If so, you may be eligible to participate in a research study that will assess your immune response to COVID-19 infection or vaccination over a 5 year period. We are looking for children and adults aged 7-95 years, and plan to collect blood every 2-6 months over the study period. (Compensation provided for the first year).
Do you or did you have COVID-19 while pregnant? We are doing a study to better understand the long-term effects of COVID-19 and who is at greatest risk of having long-term effects. Pregnant women with COVID-19 or women who had COVID-19 during their pregnancy or postpartum period with the last 24 months are invited to enroll.
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.
This project seeks to adapt and test the existing Tough Talks app to address COVID vaccine hesitancy among African American young adults (AA-YA) aged 18-29.
The purpose of this research study is to better understand, from the perspective of Black patients, whether telemedicine visits make prostate cancer decision making easier or harder. The COVID-19 pandemic made it more difficult for patients to see their doctors, but care could continue by having appointments via a computer or phone, which many prostate cancer doctors used. Whether in person or remote, successfully choosing a treatment for prostate cancer often uses shared decision making (SDM), the process where doctors and patients work together to make decisions that match what matters to patients, but it is unknown whether virtual appointments make discussions better or worse. Other studies have shown that Black patients may be less satisfied with their treatment choices than non-Black patients. Therefore, it is important that we understand how to improve the same quality of care for Black patients.
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.
The purpose of this study is to understand the experiences of pregnancy and birth during the COVID-19 pandemic. We want to learn how pregnant individuals made healthcare decisions, reduced the risk of COVID-19 infection, and used support from friends and family throughout their pregnancy and birth experience.
In this study, we will interview Black and African American EMS providers. We want to learn about their experiences in this line of work, with a focus on the COVID-19 pandemic and nationwide protest relating to police killings of Black citizens. Our goal is to characterize this experience and explore reasons for low recruitment and retention of Black EMS providers.
In this study, we want to follow people after getting a COVID-19 vaccine to test the level of immune proteins in their noses. This non-invasive test will help us learn more about immunity to COVID-19. We will compare the antibody levels in the nose to those in the blood.
