Are you a UW Medicine healthcare worker who tested for COVID-19 in the past 60 days?

Join Project Prevent, a multicenter, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)-funded public health surveillance project evaluating SARS-CoV-2 vaccine effectiveness among healthcare workers.

Eligibility and pre-screening

You may be eligible to take part in the project if you have taken an antigen at home test, NAAT test, or a PCR. There are NAAT tests available for those who qualify. You can test either positive or negative to be eligible for the project.

Take a pre-screening survey to find out if you’re eligible.

What to expect

UW Medicine healthcare workers tested for COVID-19 may be contacted by the local PREVENT Team if you pre-screen. Participants receive $100 for the completion of four online surveys. It is all online and is completely private and confidential.

Note: UW employees participating in Project Prevent are considered to be on their own time and are required to avoid using UW resources (e.g., UW work time, UW email account, UW workstation/computer, etc.) when participating in this public health surveillance project. Additionally, UW outside work policies apply, please check with your supervisor prior to participating.

Pre-screen to join Project Prevent

You may have already pre-screened or indicated you want to opt-out. We are continually reminding employees to respond so we can recruit participants. If you have already responded with your chosen option, then you do not need to indicate your choice again.
