Hawaiʻi residents invited to participate in national study on Long COVID
Hawaiʻi is breathing a collective sigh of relief as it seems we may have finally turned a corner on how we live with the pandemic. But that returning sense of normality may feel out of reach for those who are grappling with Long COVID. A new national study is seeking answers for those individuals.
The RECOVER project, run by the National Institutes of Health, will work with over 17,000 individuals over the next four years to investigate what factors lead to someone developing Long COVID, and what treatments may be effective.
Dr. Cecelia Shikuma and nurse practitioner Cris Milne are with the Hawaiʻi Center for Aids, affiliated with the University of Hawaiʻi medical school. The Conversation spoke with them about their experience working with long COVID patients.
