Long COVID: The search for answers
September 23rd @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
An on-demand video will be posted after the event.
With millions around the world affected by Long COVID, researchers are scrambling to understand causes and treatments—and policy makers are grappling with the impact on families, health care systems, and economies. In the U.S., Admiral Rachel Levine leads a newly created federal Long COVID office, charged with implementing a national research strategy and supporting families affected by the condition. She will be joined in this event by Jason Maley, a physician who leads the Critical Illness and COVID-19 Survivorship Program at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, where he is engaged in both research and clinical care. The conversation, moderated by Carol Hills of The World, will explore the state of Long COVID research, potential treatments, and proposals to address the broad societal impact of this novel and sometimes debilitating condition, which may affect as many as one in five adults after COVID-19 infection.
