National study is seeking those who have had COVID and those who haven’t.
USA Health is looking for people willing to take part in a nationwide study aimed at researching COVID with a goal of enhancing treatments and recovery for those who continue to suffer from the coronavirus. Participants will be paid for their time.
The study, sponsored by the National Institutes of Health, seeks people ages 18 and older, and doesn’t require participants to have been diagnosed with COVID, said Rosanne Wilson, C.R.N.P., coordinator for the initiative at USA Health known as RECOVER (Researching Covid to Enhance Recovery).
“Things we may ask you to do as an enrollee in the study are to answer surveys every three months, have simple health exams twice a year, and give small amounts of blood, saliva, urine, stool and nasal fluid one to two times a year,” Wilson said.
USA Health is among a consortium of three Southeastern sites known as the Deep South SARS-CoV-2 Recovery cohort.
