Free Webinar: Update on Post-COVID Conditions for Correctional Health Care
February 8 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Long COVID poses unique challenges for incarcerated individuals, adding an additional layer of complexity to an already vulnerable population. Practitioners need to be able to identify and understand the varied and sometimes subtle symptoms of Long COVID, especially when compounded by pre-existing health conditions prevalent among incarcerated populations. Long COVID can exacerbate existing mental health issues among incarcerated individuals, potentially leading to increased stress, anxiety, and depression.
Correctional health providers and correctional staff will benefit from this free webinar discussing the many considerations for identifying and treating long COVID.
