There are many organizations researching COVID-19 and potential treatments, and these studies often need individuals who have tested positive to participate. Below is a list of studies we are aware of. Maricopa County Department of Public Health (MCDPH) is not affiliated with any of these studies nor do we endorse them, and participation is entirely voluntary and between the individual and the research organization.
Purpose of Study
Vitamin D Testing and Treatment for Adults with COVID-19
Arizona State University and Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine & Health Sciences
For adults with a positive test for COVID 19, we are offering free testing of vitamin D and other nutrients. Vitamin D is important for regulating the immune system, and several recent published scientific articles have hypothesized that low vitamin D may increase the severity of COVID 19 infections.
This study is what we call a longitudinal cohort study of COVID-19 (hence, CoVHORT) in Arizona. That means we will study and compare two groups; the first is people who had COVID-19 and the second is people who didn’t. We will follow these groups over time to see how COVID-19 has affected their health and well-being.
