Dr. Alicia Salvatore, the Director of Community-Engaged Research at the ChristianaCare Value Institute and Delaware-CTR ACCEL Scholar, together with the ChristianaCare Office of Health Equity and other collaborators, is conducting a survey to better understand the impacts that the coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis is having on the lives of Delawareans.
The study team hopes as many Delaware adults as possible will take the anonymous online survey. They would like to invite you to take this online survey (links to survey below) and to share the survey links with your colleagues, clients, friends, family and community members.
To date over 400 Delawareans have taken the survey but many more are responses are needed. “Delaware is a diverse state and we want to learn as much as possible about how all Delaware communities are being impacted so that we can work together with community partners, state agencies and with our system partners to address these impacts and promote a stronger and more equitable Delaware.” Dr. Salvatore commented. The survey will be open through the fall. Dr. Salvatore and team will share survey results widely so that everyone may benefit from what has been learned.
The survey is available in either English or Spanish and takes about 15 to 30 minutes to complete. Survey questions ask about experiences with COVID-19, impacts on social determinants of health (e.g., work, food security, interpersonal safety, housing), access services as well as other ways that the ongoing crisis is impacting the daily life and wellbeing of Delawareans.

Dr. Salvatore encourages anyone who has questions or would like to learn more about the survey to contact her directly at Alicia.firstname.lastname@example.org. She thanks the Delaware-CTR for funding this survey and everyone who has taken the survey and shared the survey links.
“Many people have helped us to get the word out about the survey and each and every person who shares his or her experiences helps us to better understand the profound impacts the coronavirus is having and how much work we have to do.”
