Nevada Public Health Training Center’s #COVIDCrew has partnered with DoughBoys Donuts local owner Jay Kenny to offer a sweet incentive to students who complete a brief COVID-19 Climate Survey. This survey is interested in engaging with the sought-after 18-24-year-old demographic to gain a better understanding of how the coronavirus has impacted them and what ways the center can help.
#COVIDCrew also launched its COVIDCrew website where people can purchase the trademarked masks for $14.95, plus shipping. All of the proceeds go to a COVID Relief Fund to continue to help families affected by the virus. The website also contains valuable public health information, including a section on facts and myths related to COVID-19.
One of the objectives of the training center, a part of the University of Nevada, Reno’s School of Community Health Sciences, is to use data to support the student body during this difficult time.
“No one really knows how the students really feel,” Diana Sande, communications manager for #COVIDCrew, said. “There have been a lot of tough changes this year and we want the students’ voices to be heard. Some of the obstacles this year that have drastically changed the student experience include in-person sports fan prohibition, distance learning, virtual commencements, among others.”
University student Veronika Scavacini, who is graduating in December, said “it doesn’t feel real that I am graduating.”
Through the collaboration with DoughBoys Donuts, #COVIDCrew will provide the first 300 students who complete the survey a gift card for a free donut and coffee at the 5115 Mae Anne Ave. The link to the survey will be sent to students through Canvas.
