UAB RECOVER is a Research Study to Understand the Long-Term Effects of COVID

The University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) is working with other top universities to understand the long-term effects of COVID-19 infection as a part of the national “Researching COVID to Enhancing Recovery—RECOVER” study.

UAB RECOVER needs to hear from people who have been infected with the COVID virus. Whether you recovered quickly from COVID or you experienced its lingering symptoms, you can help us learn about COVID’s long-term effects so we can find ways to prevent and treat them.

Help us better understand the long-term effects of COVID.

If you have had COVID, or are feeling the long-term effects of COVID, you might be able to help us understand more about it. We are enlisting study participants in Birmingham, Mobile and New Orleans. Learn more about how you can be part of the UAB RECOVER research study.
