The patient-coined term Long COVID describes a range of often disabling symptoms that persist after the acute phase of COVID-19 is over. Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in January 2020, Long COVID’s recognition has been catalyzed by the efforts of Long COVID patients, who have mobilized grassroots advocacy organizations around the world.
The University of Michigan’s Global Feminisms Project is pleased to announce a first-of-its-kind collection of recorded interviews with US-based Long COVID advocates. Join us via Zoom on Friday, February 10, 2023 from 12-1PM to learn more about the interview collection and the lived experience of Long COVID advocacy in the United States.
