OVERVIEW & GOALS
Project PEACH [Rapid Acceleration of Diagnostics – Underserved Populations (RADx-UP)] is a collaboration between Morehouse School of Medicine, Emory University, and Georgia Institute of Technology. Project PEACH aims to understand the factors associated with disparities in COVID-19 morbidity and mortality to reduce disparities for underserved and vulnerable populations across the state of Georgia. Phase 2 of Project PEACH builds on Phase 1 focusing on the design and evaluation of a community-based COVID-19 testing program, meant to increase uptake and testing through behavioral nudges delivered through mobile phone texts. Project PEACH also offers a home-based intervention administered through the Albany Area Primary Health Center (AAPHC) to explore the impact of a Community Health Worker program centered on individuals living with uncontrolled diabetes by teaching participants about diabetes management and by understanding their perceptions towards COVID-19 vaccine confidence and uptake.
