TAMEST Conversation on COVID-19: Survival and Recovery

TAMEST (The Academy of Medicine, Engineering and Science of Texas) held a conversation on COVID-19: Survival and Recovery, on Wednesday, September 9. Dr. Claire Aldridge of UT Southwestern, a survivor of COVID-19, joined a hospital president and two physicians leading COVID-19 recovery clinics to explore what the path to recovery looks like and what long-term health impacts may result from the novel coronavirus. The session examined what the science says about duration of infection, the spectrum of symptoms and possibility of reinfection.
