Podward State: Data 4 Action Ft. Symbiotic Podcast

On this special collaborative episode of Podward State, hosts Matthew Ogden and Matthew Paolizzi are joined by Cole Hons of the Symbiotic Podcast, the official podcast of Penn State’s Huck Life Sciences Institute. 

Joining Cole, Matt, and Matt are two researchers from the Data 4 Action project: Meg Small, Director of Social Innovation for Penn State’s Social Science Research Institute and Connie Rogers, Associate Director for the Huck Life Sciences Institute. 

The Data 4 Action project is a research project in which Centre County residents and Penn State students get to participate in studies where they share their coronavirus pandemic experiences.

Through surveys and biological samples, Small, Rogers, and a large team of researchers spanning multiple factions of the university measure the impact of the coronavirus in the State College area from both a medical and sociological standpoint.

Be on the lookout for an email detailing how you can sign up for the Data 4 Action project. In the meantime, stay tuned for the second part of our collaboration with Cole and the Symbiotic Podcast. 

Podward State releases episodes weekly and features discussions about all things Penn State, including sports, news, student life, and entertainment.
