Welcome to the VIEW study! The VIEW (Viruses & Infections in Essential Workers) project is funded by the Centers for Disease Control and is ran by the Health Policy Center at Vanderbilt University Medical Center.

Join the VIEW study today and help us, help the community by learning more about how viruses are spread to our family and friends.
The goal of this project is to track COVID and virus transmission in our non-healthcare essential worker community. Our team recognizes the sacrifice that many of the people in our community made and continue to make to keep our cities running.

The findings of this study can be used to create better recommendations to help keep workers and their families safe.
You kept our city moving. We want to keep you safe.
