You can make a difference!
Help us improve healthcare for future generations.
Researchers are working hard to identify new treatments and strategies to improve health and to understand the diseases that make us sick, but in order to succeed they need both healthy research participants and participants with medical conditions. You can make a difference by participating in research. Health research ranges from simple questionnaires and screenings to clinical trials of investigational drugs and devices.

Researchers at the University of Kentucky need everyone’s help in understanding prevention efforts and risk related to the new COVID-19 virus. You can make a difference by completing a confidential 15-minute survey as part of the COVID-19 Prevention Project.
