AAPM&R will provide consistent updates on our advocacy outreach efforts, the Multi-Disciplinary PASC Collaborative and other relevant information on our Long COVID initiative. 

AAPM&R Releases First Long COVID Dashboard

On August 24, we launched the first dashboard that shows how many millions of Americans are estimated to be experiencing Long COVID symptoms by state, county and nationally. The dashboard is based on data from Johns Hopkins University CSSE COVID-19 data and the U.S. census, and includes state and county level statistics and trends over time for the Post-Acute Sequelae of SARS-CoV-2 (PASC or Long COVID) infection. Our dashboard also has options for estimating the number of Long COVID cases based on different assumptions and percentages. View the full announcement here and explore the dashboard

We are also hosting a webinar on September 1 for our "Multi-Disciplinary Collaborative Consensus Guidance Statement on the Assessment and Treatment of Fatigue in Post-Acute Sequelae of SARS-CoV-2 infection (PASC) Patients." Register now to learn more about this guidance and hear from our faculty.

AAPM&R Supports H.R. 3021: The Coronavirus Provider Protection Act

Representatives Luis Correa (D-CA) and Michael Burgess, MD (R-TX) recently introduced H.R. 3021, the Coronavirus Provider Protection Act, to provide uniform liability protection to medical professionals and facilities on the front lines of the pandemic. Last year, we actively advocated for enactment of the Coronavirus Provider Protection Act (H.R. 7059 in the 116th Congress). This bill aimed to protect physicians and all healthcare providers from medical liability associated with care related to the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency. Please take a moment to send a customizable email to your Congressional Representatives, urging their co-sponsorship of H.R. 3021 to provide critical federal liability protections to physicians and all healthcare providers and facilities.
