In response to unprecedented demand, Gro launched a COVID-19 education series today.
Patients with obesity, type 2 diabetes and hypertension have been shown to be at higher risk of severe COVID-19 complications.
The Coronavirus Education Series, available in the Gro app from today provides:
- 10-lesson education series and practical actions to minimise the risk of infection and spread of COVID-19
- Guides on living in self-isolation
- Techniques on coping with stress and anxiety
Patients also have support from qualified Behaviour Change Mentors within the app.
A breakthrough opt-in study will look at the use of Gro during COVID-19. The study will assess anxiety, depression and perceived stress outcomes before and after use of Gro's meditations and mindfulness activities. The real-world study will evaluate all of the users who engaged from March 1, 2020 to April 1, 2020.
