Long COVID Efforts: Working Behind the Scenes

We are working tirelessly to bring PM&R physicians to the forefront as leaders during this pandemic. On September 22, we met with a few Multi-Disciplinary PASC Collaborative members who votes on the cardiac and autonomic issues consensus statements. We also submitted comments on September 24 to the COVID Health Equity Task Force in advance of their meeting tomorrow. Our comments focused on supporting and expanding upon their proposals, including calling out the need for a coordinated, comprehensive federal response to Long COVID, support for multi-disciplinary clinics and the inclusion of physiatrists in stakeholder conversations.
