As part of a large research project to evaluate the protective effect of vitamin D against COVID-19, CHU Sainte-Justine (CHUSJ) and the Centre hospitalier de l’Université de Montréal (CHUM) are seeking healthcare staff who have direct contact with patients or colleagues and who wish to participate in this important work.


Eighty-five per cent of staffers in hospitals and long-term-care centres coped well with the mental stress they experienced during and after the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic last year.
