Jovita Rodrigues, MS
Jovita is a highly trained and qualified clinical research study coordinator. During the pandemic the principal investigator's due to being in the high-risk category stayed home. Jovita stepped up took the lead, trained all the staff on virtual visits and made sure the subjects received the follow up care that they needed. I am proud of such colleagues who during the pandemic did not panic and stepped in and are the silent heroes of today that take care of patients relentlessly. Jovita worked with sponsors for work around and solutions for patients that were in Quarantine. I am so glad to be working with her, individuals like Jovita are many and I refer to them as hidden heroes, who despite the difficulties were determined to serve while risking their own lives and did not close the research site even for a single day.
