Researchers from UF and across the nation are asking essential personnel in health care to share their stories working on the front lines of COVID-19 through a new research registry called HERO.
The HERO Registry, formally called the Healthcare Worker Exposure Response & Outcomes Registry, collects information from health care workers to better understand the impact that the COVID-19 pandemic has on them, their colleagues, family and friends.
The HERO Registry is open to anyone who works in a health care setting, including:
- Emergency responders
- Food service workers
- Environmental service workers
- Facility personnel
- Long-term care facility workers
- And other clinical and non-clinical personnel
Participation in the HERO Registry is entirely voluntary and there is no cost to join.
After joining the Registry, you will receive surveys, opportunities to participate in future studies and learnings from the HERO research community. You can participate as much or as little as you like. The Registry will follow a protocol and data guidelines to keep your information secure.
Visit the HERO page on the UF Health website at UFHealth.org/hero-research to sign up and learn more.
