In this free 45-minute recorded webinar, WCRI Executive Vice President Ramona Tanabe talks with Dr. Francesca L. Beaudoin about Brown University School of Public Health's Long COVID Initiative.

Long COVID-19, a new condition that can affect people’s ability to work and carry on with regular life, affects millions of people around the world but remains poorly understood.

To meet the challenges brought on by this emerging syndrome, the Brown University School of Public Health launched a long COVID-19 initiative that will bring together researchers, clinicians, and experts in policy as well as strategic communications, to rapidly study and communicate the significant impact of long COVID-19 on people, communities, workplaces, health care, and society as a whole.

Questions addressed in this webinar:

  • Of those who contracted COVID-19, how many will develop long-term symptoms?
  • What are the symptoms and treatment for long COVID-19?
  • What are the social and economic impacts of long COVID-19?
  • How can employers support those who have it?
  • What knowledge/research gaps exist for long COVID-19?
  • What is the status of the National Institutes of Health’s research on the long-term effects of COVID-19?
