Voluntary Opportunity: Participation in a Study on Innovations During COVID-19 Response

Sep 18, 2023 | Guest Author

Cornell University is conducting a research study titled “Innovations in Assuring Public Health” to gain insight on innovations that county public health officials took during the COVID-19 response to overcome barriers and assure community health and wellbeing. This is to help inform future planning for prevention, preparedness, and response.

Click here to learn more about the study.

Cornell is seeking up to 40 local/county health officials/directors/assistant directors/section chiefs from the 14 states that experienced state-level preemption on local public health emergency response during COVID-19: Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Montana, New Hampshire, Ohio, South Carolina, Tennessee, Utah, and Wyoming.

Participation in this study is voluntary.

Expectations

Please consider joining a Zoom-based focus group to share experiences and perspectives.

  • They are recruiting 40 public health officials to join one of four focus groups.
  • Each focus group will run for approximately 60 minutes, and will have approximately nine other public health officials in attendance.
  • The focus groups are designed to protect participant privacy, if you prefer (e.g., name or county of work does not need to be disclosed; video may be off).

If you are interested in taking part in the study, please register here.

Your choice to participate in this study should not place you at any risk related to your employment, civil liability, or reputation. Your name, county, or role will not be shared with anyone beyond the study team, and will not be included in any written or presented materials.

If you have questions, please contact Genevive (Gen) R. Meredith, DrPH, MPH, OTR, Associate Director, Cornell MPH Program, at [email protected].
