The nation has been coping with the pandemic for more than a year, and in this time, researchers have learned a great deal about how to treat COVID-19. Yet they have also been faced with what they still must learn, including how to reach the individuals who have been most dramatically impacted by the disease and who could benefit the most from new treatments.

A new $8.7 million grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) will fuel these efforts for the next two years. Adit Ginde, MD, MPH, professor of emergency medicine at CU School of Medicine and UCHealth emergency physician is leading a team of researchers from the Colorado Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus to test the real-world effectiveness of a promising treatment for high-risk COVID-19 outpatients
