DO YOU WORK IN THE FOOD INDUSTRY? JOIN OUR STUDY ON FOOD-RELATED WORK AND HEALTH!

Study Overview

DOES YOUR JOB DEAL WITH FOOD?
Researchers at Indiana University are looking for adults who are working in food-related jobs to understand their work experiences during the COVID-19 pandemic.
 
As you may know, people working in the food industry (groceries, restaurants, delivery, factories) during COVID have had a higher risk of getting the illness. Through this study, we are aiming to find ways to create more protections for food workers.
