The goal of this research project has been to collect stories about the health experiences of people living in Washtenaw County, Michigan during the time of COVID-19. We used document analysis, semi-structured interviews, structured observations, and statistical analysis to understand how people in Washtenaw discuss the health, social and economic problems stemming from the pandemic as well as the ways in which they attempt to confront and solve these problems. We are using this data to advise policy decisions in Washtenaw County.
