That’s right, CATCH is returning for another year of sample collection!

We’ll be making some changes but the bare bones are the same:

  • If you get a cold or the flu, we want you and,
  • If you’re friends with someone that has a cold or the flu, we may ask you to come help us out too
  • We want you to download our Smartphone app to help examine how sick people are interacting

Some changes that we’re making include:

  • Sending a daily message to check in with you and ask if you’re feeling OK
  • Recruiting people at the UHC; if you get a positive flu test at the health center, we want you to visit us
  • Following students outside the Cambridge Community, or even off campus.
