Did You Miss Dr. Jonathan Whiteson's Doctor Radio Segment?

During his July 26 segment, Jonathan Whiteson, MD, FAAPMR, Vice Chair of Clinical Operations and Medical Director of Cardiac and Pulmonary Rehabilitation at NYU Langone Health, Rusk Rehabilitation and a host of Doctor Radio, discussed PM&R's role in Long COVID, why physiatrists are essential in treating patients with Long COVID and why AAPM&R's leadership in its COVID-19 call to action is so important. Dr. Whiteson interviewed a Long COVID patient who shared her story as well as fellow physiatrists, Benjamin Abramoff, MD, FAAPMR, who is a co-leader of our PASC Collaborative, Talya Fleming, MD, FAAPMR and Monica Verduzco-Gutierrez, MD, FAAPMR, who are PASC Collaborative members.
