* Dec. 3, 11 a.m. — While most make a full recovery, for some people, the symptoms of COVID-19 can last for months. These patients are called “long-haulers” and UC Davis Health recently opened a clinic specifically to help. What is long-haul COVID? Why do some people have long-lasting health problems, and what can be done to help them? Join us online this Thursday, Dec. 3 to hear from a doctor treating these patients and someone who’s experienced long-haul COVID.
