Jonathan Whiteson, MD, FAAPMR was featured this week on Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health podcast, Public Health on Call. In their January 26 episode, Dr. Whiteson talked about how the field of physiatry is well positioned to work with PASC patients, what has been learned about treating symptoms like fatigue and brain fog and the future agenda for research.

Dr. Whiteson has been working as a member of AAPM&R’s Multi-Disciplinary PASC Collaborative to publish guidance related to the treatment of patients with Post-Acute Sequelae of SARS-CoV-2 (PASC or Long COVID) and provide additional education and resources to improve experience-of-care and health equity.

In addition to his efforts with the PASC Collaborative, Dr. Whiteson also 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 last July on the “Doctor Radio” show. Parts One and Two of this discussion can be listened to on the AAPM&R Online Learning Portal.
