On Campus at Duke: Duke network provides national COVID-19 support

Community Health Watch offers bilingual symptom support for self-quarantined individuals during the pandemic

In a time when access to reliable information and healthcare is critical, Duke University launched the Community Health Watch program in April 2020 to provide bilingual symptom support and guidance for people caring for themselves at home during the COVID-19 pandemic.

A recent article on Duke Today states that the program, initially designed to help individuals manage symptoms with daily texts, emails and phone calls for severe cases, quickly expanded to become the Pandemic Response Network – a network of organizations aligned to serve the broader needs of individuals and communities during the pandemic.

Visit the Pandemic Response Network to learn more, join the program to monitor your symptoms, and stay safe and connected.
