Congratulations to Penn Medicine’s COVID Watch team, which recently won a $2.5 million grant from the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) to look at COVID Watch’s impact on health, especially among Black and Latinx patients.

COVID Watch, according to the Way to Health website, uses text messages to check in with patients at risk for complications of COVID-19 who are self-isolating at home.

CHIBE-affiliated faculty member M. Kit Delgado, MD, MS, serves as the study’s primary investigator.
