ENRICH-0746 – R1 In-Person: Post-COVID Cognitive Health (ENRICH-0746_COGN)

The Long-Term Brain Health Effects of COVID-19

Although the worst part of the COVID-19 pandemic may now be over, scientists and clinicians are hard at work in their laboratories, conducting cutting-edge research to learn more about the deleterious effects of COVID-19. In this lecture, led by University of Denver tenured professor, Dr. Daniel Linseman, and PhD candidate, Allison Grossberg, discover the latest findings related to their novel research on the long-term brain health effects of COVID-19 and the possible interactions between COVID-19 infection and history of brain injury. During the first hour, learn about how COVID-19 and brain injury impact the brain. Plus, see how new research, including this study and many others, may contribute to our understanding of infection and injury and to the development of new diagnostic tests and treatments. Dr. Linseman says the theory is that a brain that’s already been stressed by concussions will be more vulnerable to long COVID symptoms. Then in the second part, Dr. Linseman guides you through an exploration of his ongoing work on innovative treatments for brain injury along with some strategies that can help you keep your brain safe after injury or infection. Leave with a clearer understanding of how researchers do their jobs and how their findings are improving our daily lives.
