Europia COVID-19 Research
Europia has asked EU nationals to tell us what they think about COVID-19. We wanted to know what our community members think, to make services to suit their needs. Europe has identified that members of communities in Central and Eastern Europe, residing in the UK, have a number of more specific concerns about Coronavirus (COVID-19). We decided to tackle this topic and interview UK health professionals. The interviews are in Romanian with Aluna Lepadatu; in Polish with Dr. Justyna Davis and in Lithuanian with Dr. Igor Starinskij.
You can read more about our work through our COVID-19 case study.
