Post COVID Lunch and Learn Series

 

Most people with COVID-19 fully recover within days or weeks of their infection, but others suffer from post-COVID symptoms much longer. UAB Medicine experts are hosting a weekly “lunch-and-learn” virtual series this summer to help people better understand and manage post-COVID symptoms, which are sometimes called “long COVID” or “post-COVID syndrome”.

Register below for these Zoom sessions, and you’ll be given the chance to submit questions for our doctors to answer during their presentations.

Post-COVID symptoms can include:

  • Tiredness or fatigue
  • Difficulty thinking or concentrating (sometimes referred to as “brain fog”)
  • Headache
  • Loss of smell or taste
  • Dizziness on standing
  • Fast-beating or pounding heart (also known as heart palpitations)
  • Chest pain
  • Difficulty breathing or shortness of breath
  • Cough
  • Joint or muscle pain
  • Depression or anxiety
  • Fever
  • Symptoms that get worse after physical or mental activities
