Experts from Stony Brook Medicine’s Post-Covid Clinic will present “Post-Covid: In It for the Long Haul,” a livestream event examining long-term effects and approaches to care, on Tuesday at 4:45 p.m.

According to the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, most people with Covid-19 get better within weeks, though some experience long-term issues. Post-Covid conditions are a wide range of new, returning, or ongoing health problems people can experience weeks after first being infected.

Dr. Sritha Rajupet, director of population-based health initiatives, the department of family, population, and preventive medicine, and primary care lead at the Post-Covid Clinic, will moderate the discussion. Agnieszka Kowalska, Abigail Chua, and Jenna Palladino, all of Stony Brook Medicine, are the panelists.

The discussion will stream on Facebook Live, on the Post-Covid Clinic's website, and on its YouTube channel.

Stony Brook’s post-Covid facility opened in November 2020 at Stony Brook Medicine’s Advanced Specialty Care in Commack to provide ongoing care and assessment of adult patients who are recovering from Covid-19. The clinic provides care for patients who are still experiencing symptoms and monitors patients for any late effects of a Covid infection. Patients have access to specialists in primary care, cardiology, pulmonary medicine, nephrology, vascular, and neurology as well as to mental health providers.
