"Understanding Long COVID: Clinical Approaches and Relationship to ME/CFS"
Jason Maley, MD
Program Director, Critical Illness and COVID-19 Survivorship Program
In this edition of Sunday Conversations with MassME, Jason Maley will discuss what is known to date about the biology of long COVID, the approaches taken in caring for long COVID care in existing clinics, and what is known about the overlap between ME/CFS and long COVID. A recording will be available after the event.
Jason Maley is an Assistant Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School and is a Lecturer at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He works as a pulmonary and critical care physician and is director of the Critical Illness and COVID-19 Survivorship Program at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston.
The Critical Illness and COVID-19 Survivorship Program was launched in 2021 and is one of only a few in the country to integrate a broad multi-disciplinary team of medical experts to treat patients with persistent symptoms, which are also described as "long-COVID" or "post-acute sequelae of COVID-19 (PASC)." The program is open to anyone experiencing long-COVID symptoms regardless of where they were treated for their initial COVID-19 illness. Patients are initially scheduled for a telehealth visit, and eventually an individual plan is developed for each baptient based on their main deficiencies.
