COVID has affected every American and indelibly changed our way of life. No one has escaped the many burdens of 2020. But those of us with chronic diseases have had an additional layer of worry, burden and risk as we seek to negotiate our health and safety amidst this pandemic. This is why we look forward to offering a high-level webinar discussion on the issue of COVID and Chronic Disease at 2:00PM ET on Thursday, October 8th.
Our webinar will tackle many of the most pressing issues around COVID and chronic disease. Discussion items will include the unique dangers and disproportionate impacts of COVID on chronic disease patients. We will also look at access issues and evolving public policy, as well as considerations for patients as we move – hopefully – toward the COVID vaccination phase. We are still assembling our final roster of panelists, but invitees include patient advocate professionals from the American Diabetes Association, Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation, National Psoriasis Foundation and the Arthritis Foundation.
