Responses to COVID-19

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve in the greater Washington DC area, we are following the directives of our respective universities and institutions. As a result, most GHUCCTS physical offices are closed and we have shifted to virtual support for our research faculty, staff and trainees. Our Clinical Research Units at Georgetown University Hospital and Howard University Hospital remain open for ongoing studies that require scheduled visits for already enrolled patients, but not for new enrollments or new protocols at this time.

Oct 01, 2020

For the last two years, the National Hispanic Council on Aging (NHCOA) has partnered with the National Institutes of Health to raise awareness about the All of Us Research Program (AoU). The All of Us Research Program is inviting one million people across the U.S. to help build one of the most diverse health databases in history. NHCOA’s role in the AoU program is to raise awareness about health research and the program itself. In an effort to do that, we are hosting a webinar entitled, “Lessons from the Field: Conducting health research with hard to reach populations.” This webinar provided a space for researchers and other AoU partners to learn from community researchers who already engage hard to reach populations.
