Project Viva Visits

In September 2020, we began offering in-person visits again after a 6 month pause due to COVID-19. We have implemented enhanced screening, personal protective equipment (PPE), social distancing, cleaning, and disinfecting procedures in order to keep our participants and staff safe. For more details on our mitigation measures, please click here. We are excited to be offering in-person visits again and we look forward to seeing you soon! In addition, to better accommodate your schedules we have started conducting phone-based remote visits. The remote visit provides an opportunity to collect e-consent, questionnaires, medical history, contact information, and dietary recalls remotely and they take no more than 30 minutes to complete. Remote visits will continue to be offered if you are unable to do in-person visits both during and after the COVID-19 pandemic. Project Viva is no longer enrolling new participants. If you are an already enrolled Project Viva participant, click below to email us about your interest in signing up for a visit!
