In Fall 2020, WUSF began reporting on how distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine exposes inequities in Florida's health care system. Our stories focus on the voices of residents in communities of color and how Florida's handling of the coronavirus pandemic and vaccine distribution affects them.WUSF’s reporting on disparities in health care access is funded in part by the COVID-19 Response Initiative of Charles & Margery Barancik Foundation and Gulf Coast Community Foundation.

Whether or not you ever had COVID-19, the pandemic may still have disrupted your health routines and access to care.

Health News Florida is inviting members of the community with chronic conditions like diabetes, high blood pressure, asthma, etc., to share how the pandemic has affected their health.

Maybe your doctors' appointments were cancelled because of stay-at-home orders or you lost your health insurance because you were laid off from work. Or maybe the pandemic caused stress and anxiety that threw off your health routines.

If you or someone you know experienced disruptions in managing chronic health conditions, share your feedback by filling out this form:
