Dr. Greg Marcus discusses COVID-19 research study expansion with ABC7 news

Dr. Greg Marcus was interviewed by ABC7 News about the expansion of the COVID-19 Citizen Science research study, which has 22,000+ participants to date. 

The study includes participants from all over the world who participate in daily surveys and health monitoring using their smartphones.
