This study is designed as a follow-up to the REAL-U study. The current study has three main objectives: 1) An examination of whether there are decreases in rates of substance use compared to data collected in prior waves depending on digital and social connection, co-occurring symptoms, and parent involvement; 2) Further investigation of decreased substance use depending on current experiences with COVID in terms of stress and interpersonal relationships; and 3) An exploration of whether parent-child communication in previous waves predicts adjustment during COVID and current parent-child relationship functioning.
Have you received a COVID-19 vaccine? If you have IBD, you may be able to take part in PREVENT COVID, a research study to learn more about how well the COVID-19 vaccine works in people with IBD. You can help us out by joining PREVENT and answering a few online surveys.
When you get a Covid infection, it starts in your nose. We want to learn more about the levels of immune proteins in the noses of people who have received a COVID-19 vaccine.
To collect data about the side effects to the COVID vaccine from UNC Hospital employees and physicians and to measure the impact of these side effects on the individuals ability to do their jobs.
The purpose of this study is to assess the feasibility and impact of a partnership between Good Bowls and local restaurants currently out of work (or working less) due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
We are looking for UNC Health Care personnel between the ages of 25 and 50 to participate in a study testing how exposure to news affects stress levels. The study involves one on-site visit and completion of online questionnaires, with the use of eye tracking technology and blood collection to evaluate stress responses to pandemic related cues. Participants who enroll in our study will receive $150 for completion.
In this research study we want to learn more about COVID-19, including how the immune systems of children and young adults work to prevent COVID-19 and to help them recover from it.
Purpose: The purpose of this study is to delineate the scope of challenges to the primary care workforce due to Covid-19 induced changes in primary care and identify key deficits and promising approaches to handling these challenges.
We are doing this study to learn about the experiences of patients who have visited their primary care doctor (UNC Health affiliated clinics/providers) during the COVID-19 pandemic. With the increase in telehealth visits during the pandemic, we want to learn about your experiences! UNC-CH is a partner site for this research with Weill Cornell University. A screened participant list will be sent to Weill-Cornell (primary site) to schedule and initiate interviews.
Using study data, we will assess associations between health information exposure and engagement in preventive behaviors. Using data collected at multiple timepoints, we will further determine whether changes in exposure to different types of information over time affect participant's participation in COVID-19 vaccination, as well as potential factors (ex. beliefs about COVID-19, participation in other preventive behaviors, intent to get a COVID-19 vaccination) that mediate this association. Findings from the proposed study will inform emerging literature on exposure to and effects of exposure to health (mis)information, as well as ongoing research seeking to aid in slowing the spread of COVID-19.
