Studying long COVID among Wash. Latinos

The Latino Center for Health at the University of Washington and partners are studying how long COVID effects Latino communities in Washington state.

"We want to understand how prevalent long COVID is, what kinds of symptoms people have, what kind of impact it has on their health and well-being in order to help mobilize a response," said Dr. Leo Morales, a professor of medicine at the University of Washington School of Medicine and co-director of the Latino Center for Health.
