SARS Cov-2 Nasal Pharyngeal and Oral Pharyngeal Wash (SNOW) Trial SARS Cov-2 Nasal Pharyngeal and Oral Pharyngeal Wash (SNOW) Trial

College students recently diagnosed with SARS-CoV-2 infection who use a 4-day combined intervention of nasal washes with 1% baby shampoo solution and oral gargles with Listerine Antiseptic® will have a reduced SARS-CoV-2 viral load compared to those using nasal and oral washes with normal saline. This combined intervention should be acceptable, tolerable and safe in this population. To test this, we are conducting a trial comparing the efficacy of a number of washes in reducing the oral and nasal SARS-CoV-2 viral load among college students.

Penn State SELF - Student Engagement, Learning and Flourishing

Substance misuse is a leading national problem, with young adults at high risk. We aim to develop a university resource that elucidates biobehavioral underpinnings of problematic student substance use at University Park campus. This initiative would inform services needed, provide engaged learning opportunities, connect with faculty, and catalyze high-impact, interdisciplinary research. In addition to this primary rationale, this study will allow us to capture detailed information about other critical student experiences such as food and housing insecurity, experiences of discrimination, and daily health practices to prevent the transmission of COVID-19. Participants will be asked to take a baseline survey followed by a 21- daily diary protocol (brief 5 minute survey each day for 21 days. For more information or to register interest in participating please see: https://projectself.psu.edu/register-your-interest/

COVID-19 and the intolerance of uncertainty in school-aged children with special needs and their parents

The purpose of the proposed project is to collect survey responses examining parent and children’s thought, feelings, and behaviors associated with the COVID-19 pandemic. Such a project is crucial as it will likely inform key areas of intervention and barriers to treatment during national crises and in times of uncertainty. Specifically, the project aims to collect survey responses from parents of school-aged children (elementary ages 5-11) who have a diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) at two different time points, approximately 6-months apart.
