African American and Hispanic participants needed for COVID-19 study

The UGA Clinical and Translational Research Unit is currently enrolling for the SPARTA study to understand immunity after infection with the virus that causes COVID-19, as well as immunity after COVID-19 vaccination.

Researchers are looking for Black and Hispanic individuals to join the study to better understand how COVID impacts people of every racial and ethnic background. Those with or without prior COVID-19 infection and with or without COVID-19 vaccination are welcome. Study visits are monthly or less often until summer 2022 and involve a blood draw, saliva collection and health assessment, and provide $30 per visit.
