Research Study: COVID-19 Testing in Schools

Researchers at Duke University are conducting telephone interviews to hear what parents and caregivers of Latino/a/x students in Durham County public or charter schools think about COVID-19 testing in schools. The interview can be conducted in Spanish or English and will last about 1 hour. A summary of the information learned from parents and caregivers will be shared with the Durham school system, in hopes of informing their COVID-19 testing plans. The names of people who took part in the interviews will not be shared with schools. All participants will receive a gift card for their time. 
If you know of anyone who is interested in taking part, please contact Lorraine Vergara, office phone: 919-668-9389, email: lorraine.vergara@duke.edu. You can also contact the study lead: Amy Corneli at amy.corneli@duke.edu.
