A new North Carolina study called VISION, funded by the North Carolina Collaboratory, will enroll 7,500 adults recently diagnosed with COVID-19 to understand the different factors that impact individual risk for key clinical outcomes including recovery from acute illness, symptom rebound, re-infection and long COVID.
In July 2021, a historic $26 billion agreement was reached between states and several large drug distributors and opioid manufacturers. As part of that settlement agreement, the state of North Carolina and local governments across the state are set to receive $757 million over the next 18 years to address the opioid crisis.
On Tuesday, Nov. 15, the Collaboratory is excited to host N.C. Department of Environmental Quality Secretary Elizabeth Biser on UNC-Chapel Hill’s campus. Secretary Biser will participate in a panel focused on environmental justice in policy making. The event is open to University students, staff and faculty.
