Rare Diseases Clinical Research Network COVID-19 Survey
How are you being impacted by the novel coronavirus pandemic?
Please complete a 20-minute online research survey from home to share your experiences. This study is being conducted by the NIH’s Rare Diseases Clinical Research Network. Is access to care changing? Can you get needed medical and nutritional supplies? Are stress and anxiety impacting you and your family? Your responses may help researchers understand the impacts of COVID-19 on the rare disease community.
