Participation in this research study involves one 45-minute session that takes place over the phone. Eligible participants must be able to read and understand English.


STUDY PURPOSE

Understanding the experiences of patients and caregivers during the COVID-19 pandemic is important as researchers work to develop new topics to study.  The purpose of this study is to create an archive of patient and caregiver COVID-19 stories that researchers can use to better understand people’s experiences with health, illness, coping, and the healthcare system. Researchers hope their findings will lead to the development of research studies that address topics that are important to patients and caregivers.
