Site Image

Study Overview

The purpose of this research study is to understand how our patients with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and other neuroimmune disorders are being affected by the COVID-19 outbreak. We want to understand how susceptible our patients are to COVID-19. We also want to evaluate the longer-term social and psychological consequences of the pandemic for individuals who have chronic neuroimmune diseases. We are also inviting healthy individuals to participate in this study as controls.

Study Description

This study will employ prospective data collection and review of medical records. It is an observational, non-interventional study. Participants will be provided with a longitudinal set of online questionnaires to assess response to the COVID-19 outbreak. Information surrounding their neurologic diagnosis will be verified from their medical records. A set of surveys will be sent out every 2-4 weeks, and each set of surveys will require approximately 10-30 minutes to complete. There will be 16 total sets of surveys over 52 weeks. No in-person visits or testing are required. Your participation will last for approximately 2 years.
