The free Sept. 8 webinar will feature an expert panel discussing post-COVID-19 condition.
A patient who has been diagnosed with COVID-19 may be in for a long haul of illness as physicians struggle to understand so-called long COVID.
This will be the main topic of discussion at 12:30 p.m. EST on Sept. 8 as a panel of experts gather digitally for a free webinar to discuss how to help patients living with post-acute sequelae after testing positive for COVID-19.
These patients experience persistent symptoms such as fatigue, cognitive dysfunction, shortness of breath, joint pain, heart inflammation, sleep issues, and more.
Attend the webinar to hear discussion of what is known about these long-term consequences of infection, what recovery from COVID-19 looks like across varying populations, what are the underlying biological causes, and whether the COVID-19 vaccine has any effect on these lingering symptoms.
The panel will be moderated by Nathalie MacDermott, MBBCH, PhD, academic clinic lecturer in pediatrics at King’s College in London, and will feature Akiko Iwasaki, PhD, Director Waldemar Von Zedtwitz Professor of Immunobiology and Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology at Yale School of Medicine; Michael Zandi, MA, MB, BChir, PhD, FRCP, Consultant Neurologist at National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery; Valeria Iodice, PhD, consultant neurologist at University College London; Robert Bell MRCP, PhD, of University College London; and David Putrino, PhD, director of innovation, Department of Rehabilitation and Human Performance at Mount Sinai Health System.
