  • Post Title: University of Michigan: Help others by sharing your COVID-19 story! [Research]
  • Study Description: Doctors and researchers from the University of Michigan want to hear your stories of care and recovery throughout your journey with COVID-19. With your voice, we will be developing resources for patients and those caring for them that better support patient recovery from home. The HEART (Health Enhanced by Adjusting and Recovering Together) Project [HUM00158390] knows family, friends, and community are so important during recovery, which is why we are seeking input from two perspectives:
  • (1) Adults in the U.S. who were hospitalized with COVID-19 but are now recovering from home
  • (2) Adults in the U.S. who were caring for someone recovering from home after being hospitalized with COVID-19
  • Date of Approval: 8/20/2020
  • OHRP IRB Registration Number(s): IRB00000244

  • Project Title: The Sociocultural Dimensions of COVID-19
  • Study description: A group of international researchers are working together to interview and survey people about living during the pandemic. Findings from the research include increasing knowledge on pandemics and xenophobia, the importance of sovereignty in pandemic response, using disability justice frameworks to understand pandemic ableism, investigating the relationship between social movements and COVID-19, and understanding gender and political orientation. The team is also investigating strategies for well-being and patient-provider communication.
