Long COVID Efforts

We have undertaken comprehensive efforts to support our call for a national plan to address Long COVID. We have created a multidisciplinary collaborative, published six guidance statements (more to come!) and released a Long COVID Dashboard. The Academy and our members have also been featured in 70+ media outlets discussing the value of PM&R physicians in healthcare.


Together, the specialty of PM&R boldly discussed its future. Together, we envisioned new practice models and areas of opportunity to expand the impact of our care. Now, it is time to advance; to transition from conversation to action and make the vision for physiatry a reality.
