COVID-19 Prevention Project

Protecting Ourselves, Our Families, and Our Communities

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.

Scientists and doctors still have much to learn about the COVID-19 virus. Our social nature is part of what transmits the disease—the virus spreads between people who are near each other—so it is critically important that we understand how people are taking steps to contain the virus and what they think about risks of transmitting the virus.

You can make a difference! Participating in the COVID-19 Prevention Project is a way to contribute to the worldwide effort to stop the pandemic.

We need people from all walks of life, especially groups that are historically underrepresented in health research, such as people of color, the LGBTQIA community, people with disabilities, people from rural areas, and women. 

The COVID-19 Prevention Project survey will take about 10-15 minutes. It will ask about your efforts to protect yourself from infection and your sense of risk for getting the virus. Understanding these aspects of the disease is crucial to our efforts to save lives, slow the rate of infection, and re-open the economy.            

Please forward this survey to your family, friends, and co-workers and encourage them to help COVID-19 research by responding. Share the survey on social media with #COVIDPreventionProject.

The COVID-19 Prevention Project is part of the Wellness, Health & You (WHY) Program, which aims to how different life experiences affect health. WHY members also receive health information and research participation opportunities relevant to them.
