Getting INFORMED to Stay Healthy

“INFORMED” is a research study targeting Asian Americans with the goal of providing up-to-date information about COVID-19. “INFORMED” stands for “Individual and Family Oriented Responsive Messaging Education.”

The purpose of INFORMED is to understand and address barriers related to COVID-19 testing and vaccination. We hope to provide updated information that is responsive to the fast-evolving situation of COVID-19. In addition, we will update and modify our messages in response to feedback from our community members. We want to help Chinese, Vietnamese, and Hmong Americans increase knowledge about COVID-19 testing and vaccination, and make well-informed decision about practicing safety measures, testing, and vaccination for COVID-19.
