Kate, Phlebotomist & Research Assistant
"Millions of people will benefit from this," said Kate about her work with the RECOVER Study. "It’s satisfying to play a part in something so significant."
The RECOVER Study is one of the largest, longest-running cohort studies of COVID-19. Run by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), St. Luke's is one of only six research sites across the country that are studying how COVID-19 moves through populations. The findings will help inform national public health guidance.
As a phlebotomist and research assistant, Kate helps collect and prepare samples for the study. She also helps triage patients who come to the hospital lab. She loves that her job allows her to make a positive difference in the world.
"I'm all about making people’s lives better, and that's what I get to do here, " she said. "Whether it’s collecting data for a national study or just being kind to patients, I know my work matters. That's pretty awesome, if you ask me."
Thanks, Kate, for all you do to support our patients and the RECOVER Study!
