Listening to Long COVID ECHO

Post-COVID conditions are a wide range of new, returning, or ongoing health problems that people experience after being infected with the virus that causes COVID-19. People with post-COVID conditions may develop or continue to have symptoms that are hard to explain and manage.

To learn the science behind Long COVID, patients’ experience (physical, socio-economical, psychological), and explore the difficult-to-treat and poorly understood effects of Long COVID from the patient’s perspective, we are launching the Listening to Long COVID ECHO series in partnership with Health Confianza, a collaboration between UT Health San Antonio, UT San Antonio, and the San Antonio Metropolitan Health District.

Subject matter experts, including physicians, mental health professionals, faith leaders, indigenous historians/practitioners, and artists, share symptom management strategies, including traditional, integrative, and complementary approaches. Sessions include a brief educational presentation, a curated, pre-recorded personal illness narrative from an individual whose life has been impacted by Long COVID, followed by a group discussion to share challenges and best practices in caring for people living with Long COVID symptoms.

This interactive, peer-to-peer learning community will offer:

  • Free continuing education credits
  • Ongoing, case-based learning
  • Engagement with a dynamic community of learning
  • Professional growth and networking
  • Capacity building for community health

This series ran February – April 2023. View all session recordings and resources below.
