    Greetings field colleagues! I am reaching out today to request participation in a qualitative research study I am conducting that focuses on the impact of COVID-19 on field directors and field education. Interviews will be conducting in a semi-structured way and are anticipated to last around 40 minutes. Questions can be emailed to this researcher at any time.
