Media Advisory: UC Davis LIVE on COVID-19 Long-Haulers

By Andy Fell on December 1, 2020 in Human & Animal Health

* 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.

The guests:

  • Christian Sandrock is a professor of pulmonary and critical care medicine at UC Davis Health. He specializes in treating respiratory infections and has been on the frontlines of treating COVID-19 patients. Dr Sandrock is part of the team that recently launched a Post-COVID-19 Clinic to help patients dealing with long-term health issues associated with COVID-19. His research focuses on preventing outbreaks of emerging infectious diseases and improving ICU care for critically ill patients.
  • Marina Oshana is a professor emerita with the UC Davis Department of Philosophy and a patient of the UC Davis Health Pulmonary Medicine Clinic. She has been dealing with symptoms of COVID-19 since Feb. of this year.

The conversation, hosted by Soterios Johnson, will be streamed live on FacebookYouTube and Twitter beginning at 11 a.m. Thursday, Dec. 3.  

Questions can be submitted via Facebook and Twitter either in advance or during the show.
