By July 19, 2023No Comments

A study published this spring provides valuable insight into how the presentation of long-term COVID-19 symptoms change over time.

The study looked at 5,963 patients, 2,000 of whom were King County residents participating through the University of Washington School of Medicine. Within this population, 4,504 tested positive and 1,459 tested negative.

According to the senior author, Kari Stephens, the study will aid providers in the process of figuring out how to best treat long COVID-19. Stephens also serves as the Helen D. Cohen Endowed Professor and research section head in the department of family medicine, and as an adjunct professor in the department of biomedical informatics and medical education at the University of Washington School of Medicine.
