African-American and Latinx Residents Needed For COVID-19 Focus Groups
The Michigan Communities Conquering COVID-19 Coalition (MI-CEAL) is inviting African-American/Black and Hispanic/Latinx residents of Kent County to participate in a focus group research study. The goal of the study is to understand community experiences and opinions related to COVID-19, as communities of color have been more deeply affected by the pandemic.
A focus group takes 1.5 hours and is done remotely by video or phone call, using Zoom. Each participant will receive a $50 gift card as a thank you for their time and participation.
