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.
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.
