Join us for two exciting presentations on COVID-19

COVID-19:  The Long Haul

More and more is being learned about the physical effects that COVID-19 causes. Not only can COVID-19 produce acute life ending illness, it’s effects can linger for months and likely years after the initial infection. In some individuals, this leads to a significant reduction in functional ability and inability to continue to work. Dr. Robert Clinton will discuss these lingering effects, diagnostic evaluations, current treatment strategies and prognosis.

Understanding Cognitive and Emotional Symptoms associated with Post-Acute COVID-19

Dr. David Lovejoy will discuss the impact of COVID-19 on the brain including persistent cognitive and emotional complaints as a part of the an emerging picture of a post-COVID syndrome
