Researching COVID to Enhance Recovery
CCPH has partnered with RECOVER’s National Community Engagement Group (NCEG) to support the National Institutes of Health (NIH) COVID-19 research efforts. This research seeks to understand how people recover from a COVID infection and why some do not fully recover through in-depth community engagement efforts.
Teamwork is at the heart of RECOVER. Researchers, healthcare professionals, and organizations across the country are working together to find answers.
Possible Research Outcomes:
- How lingering effects and symptoms affect different groups of people.
- How the virus that causes COVID can lead to long-term effects.
- If getting COVID makes people more likely to develop other health conditions.
- Why do some people who get COVID have long-term effects, but others don’t?
The Partnership at Work
CCPH is utilizing our diverse network and partnerships for participant recruitment in Listening Sessions to engage communities in conversations about Long COVID and to support our partners in introducing the RECOVER Initiative.
What are Listening Sessions?
Listening sessions are an entry point in understanding how to engage communities about Long COVID and introduce the RECOVER Initiative.
Listening sessions help identify trusted messengers within communities that can act as strategic partners to bridge gaps in bidirectional communication and support RECOVER teams to develop more effective messages tailored to specific communities across the United States.
Our Priority Populations:
- African/African American/Black
- Tribal/Native American
- Asian/Asian American
- Hawaiian/Pacific Islander
- People who are pregnant
CCPH is including voices of communities disproportionately affected by COVID-19: Black, Indigenous, and People of Color.
We learn more when we work together.
CCPH is gathering emerging themes, lessons learned, and insights from our community. We’ll be discussing our latest findings through virtual reflection sessions.
We’re looking for trusted messengers within communities that can act as strategic partners to bridge gaps in bidirectional communication and support the RECOVER Initiative teams to develop more effective messages tailored to specific communities across the US.
We learn more when we work together. Research study participants are still needed to help us understand COVID-19 and its effects.
