UF Health employees are invited to take part in the Healthcare Worker Exposure Response & Outcomes (HERO) Registry. The effort allows health care workers across the country to share clinical and life experiences so organizers can better understand the perspectives and problems they face on the COVID-19 pandemic front lines.
The registry seeks the participation of nurses, therapists, physicians, emergency responders, food service workers, environmental services workers, interpreters, transporters and anyone else who works in a setting where people receive health care.
After registering, health care workers can participate as much or as little as they like through surveys and clinical trial opportunities. Future studies will help improve understanding of COVID-19 and beyond, generating evidence to help keep health care workers safe and healthy.
The first round of surveys is now online, followed shortly by the opportunity to enroll in the HERO-HCQ Trial, which will invite 15,000 health care workers from the registry to evaluate whether hydroxychloroquine can prevent COVID-19 infections. The UF Health Jacksonville campus is participating in the registry and clinical trial.
Visit heroesresearch.org for more information or to register.
