Community Health Watch Study to Enhance the COVID-19 Pandemic Response.

We’re facing times that many of us could never have imagined due to COVID-19. We want to improve how health care systems respond to pandemics. Through the “Pandemic Response Network” (PRN) study, we will investigate and characterize the impact of COVID-19 on individual patients and populations. Our findings can improve how health care systems prepare and plan for circumstances such as the COVID-19 pandemic.

If you have flu-like symptoms, have been tested for or confirmed to have COVID-19, or are concerned about COVID-19 exposure and would like to track your symptoms twice a day for four weeks, please consider learning more about this study. To learn more and engage, please sign up below.
