This virtual event is hosted by OHSU and the Marquam Hill Steering Committee, an OHSU community stewardship group launched in 1981. Marquam Talks are virtual talks showcasing the research and clinical advances of OHSU faculty on timely topics.

Long COVID is quickly becoming the latest devastating impact of the coronavirus. The so-called long haulers – a significant minority of patients who continue to have fatigue, trouble breathing, heart palpitations and other symptoms months after their initial illness – require an emerging specialty care.

In the spring of 2021, OHSU launched a Long COVID Program specifically designed to coordinate care and learn about the long-term impacts of coronavirus. The multidisciplinary clinic brings together providers who specialize in pulmonology, cardiology, neurology, primary care and physical rehabilitation, among other areas.

Join us this fall for a panel discussion with leaders of the Long COVID Program to discuss what we know about long COVID, and where we go from here.
