POST COVID-19 RESEARCH CLINIC
The Post COVID-19 Research Clinic is a multi-disciplinary collaboration between the Louisville community and the Center of Excellence for Research in Infectious Diseases at the University of Louisville’s Division of Infectious Diseases. The aim of this clinic is to define and evaluate the short- and long-term health consequences of COVID-19 for patients who have previously diagnosed with the infection.
The Post COVID-19 Research Clinic is a free clinic focusing on research to learn about the consequences of COVID-19 and does not provide treatment. No treatment or referrals will be provided at the COVID-19 research clinic. If there are any significant abnormal findings, you will be notified, and it will be up to you to seek medical advice or care from your primary care provider.
WHAT TO EXPECT AS A PARTICIPANT
Once you are enrolled in the research clinic, you will be followed for one year and assessed at various time intervals.
As a study participant, you will:
Complete health surveys and assessments including: EKG, lung function test, and ultrasounds
Provide laboratory specimens such as blood, urine, and stool
Grant permission to access medical records
If you have had a confirmed past COVID-19 infection and are 18+, you may be eligible to participate in the Post COVID-19 Research Clinic. Vaccination status does not affect eligibility.
