  • COCA Call: Evaluating and Supporting Patients Presenting with Cognitive Symptoms Following COVID: On Thurs., May 5th from 2 to 3 p.m. ET, COCA will hold a call to discuss post-COVID-19 conditions (PCC), an umbrella term for the wide range of health consequences that are present four or more weeks after infection with SARS-CoV-2, which includes long COVID.

In addition, members are encouraged to review the latest updates to the National Institutes of Health's (NIH) COVID-19 Treatment Guidelines webpage.
