Description:

PORTLAND, Ore. — Millions of Americans survive COVID-19, but lingering symptoms can stay with them for months.

At Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU), there's a new program to try to treat patients considered long-haulers. It's one of dozens that has opened, or will be opening, in the U.S., as reported by NBC News.

So far, it's the only specialized post-COVID clinic we know of in the state of Oregon. OHSU is finalizing its Long COVID-19 Program, which it hopes to launch in about a month. It's a specialized, coordinated approach to care for Oregonians dealing with an illness that doesn't have a known cure, now labeled Post-Acute Sequelae of SARS-CoV-2 infection (PASC).
