EPICC Research Study

Description (Dublin Core)

In October 2021 I was selected to voluntarily participate in the EPICC DoD Research Study on COVID-19. This study is focused on adulty active duty and non-active duty military service members who have tested for, had, or is vaccinated against COVID-19, and part of the Military Health System. I had never participated in a study before and honestly what hooked me was the $10 Amazon gift card they would give us for participating.
Fast forward six months and I have completed three questionaries and one at-home blood sample kit. I think it's pretty cool to be participating in something that may improve the Military Health System overall and also provide data points for future research of COVID-19. Studies like this show how novel this virus really was and how we want to learn as much as we can about it in an effort to be more prepared for similar events in the future.
