Doing Our Part!

Tuesday, April 21st, 2020

It’s been quite a month here in Southeastern Connecticut as we work together to flatten the curve against COVID-19.  Please allow us to thank our many study volunteers to continue to participate in research.  We would also like to thank the doctors, nurses, pharmacists, first responders, grocery store workers, and all those staffing essential businesses who are on the front lines of the Coronavirus pandemic. We also offer our deepest condolences to those families who have lost a loved one as a result of COVID-19.

Research is underway throughout the world trying to create an effective vaccine for the disease. Now more than ever, we shine a light on how important research is to improving our world.

It seems that many of us are living day to day, doing our best to comply with social distancing and keep others safe and healthy.  Spring in New England is typically a time we witness blossoming beauty all around us.  Here is hoping our world can heal and we can all do our part to stay safe, healthy and keep others safe and healthy.

 

How Are You Doing?

Tuesday, April 7th, 2020

How are you doing?  We sincerely hope you and your loved ones are in good health.  A few months ago who knew the term “social distancing” would become such a part of our everyday lives?  We appreciate all of our study volunteers who have continued to participate in research (with the proper safety measure and protocols in place.)  We also are proud to work in the important field of research. Many Americans who were once unfamiliar with the term “clinical trial” are beginning to hear more about how important it is to find new ways of treating disease, illness and chronic conditions.

While life as we once knew it may be temporarily on hold, there are many things you can do to continue to enjoy your quality of life.  Journal.  Keep a gratitude list. Go out for a walk each day (keeping proper social distance of course!)  Gaze up at a clear blue sky. Play with your dog.  Hug your kids.  Place a zoom call with some old friends.  Play scrabble.  Sit down for a meal with your family.  Smile. Breathe deeply.  Meditate. You get the picture.

We are still screening patients for our hot flash study and are pre-screening patients over the telephone for studies including migraines and work productivity, Parkinson’s disease, birth control and Alzheimer’s disease.  If you wish to learn more, contact us, we’re here – (860)443-4567.

Stay well!

March 24, 2020 Coronavirus Statement

Tuesday, March 24th, 2020

Coastal Connecticut Research is part of the healthcare services and pharmaceutical industries, considered critical infrastructures by our government. As such, we will remain open to provide care and to monitor our clinical research study patients.

Because social distancing has been identified as a key component in preventing the spread of the Coronavirus, we have moved the screening visits of potential study participants to a later date and will only be seeing patients already enrolled in current studies.

For those who may have been interested in one of our studies, please keep in mind all of our prescreening is done over the telephone by site personnel. Potential study participants can prescreen at any time over the telephone, with appointments being set up at a later date.

Coastal Connecticut Research will continue to follow the appropriate hygienic and social distancing procedures implemented at our site as a result of the Coronavirus.

Please contact Coastal Connecticut Research at (860)443-4567 if you have any further questions.  We look forward to continuing to serve you by providing quality study-related care, a professional atmosphere and all the latest updates to how we are responding to the Coronavirus situation.
