As we approach the three-year anniversary of the first diagnosed case of COVID-19 in the United States, we continue to see people suffer from long COVID and the significant impacts to their daily lives. From brain fog to chronic fatigue, long-haulers are now considered the newest wave of chronic disease patients.

In this session we will explore what long-COVID is, how our health care system is working to support patients and how veteran chronic disease patients can help newly diagnosed patients navigate their new health journey.
