The NCHAT Stress Biology Study (NCHAT-BIO)
The National Couple’s Health and Time Study (NCHAT) collects information on daily experiences, stress, and family experiences. The researchers are looking to see how these experiences affect the health of individuals and families. NCHAT-BIO is an extension of NCHAT. In this study, researchers are looking at how these experiences may affect your health through biological markers in your blood.
The Ohio First Responders Stress and Health Study
The Ohio First Responders Stress & Health Study will look at stress, trauma, coping, and mental health among firefighters, emergency medical technicians, and law enforcement during the COVID-19 pandemic. All participants will complete an online questionnaire. Some participants will also mail in a small sample of blood, collected at home, so that we can examine how stress affects biological markers of health. All questionnaire and blood sample data will be collected anonymously.
