The Long Arc of Long Covid

Millions of people are now disabled because of a long Covid, leading to what some are calling a “mass disabling event.” In this episode, Audie speaks with Dr. Monica Verduzco-Gutierrez, who has been diagnosing and treating patients with long Covid, to unpack this new terminology. Audie also hears from Imani Barbarin, a disability advocate, and Alexis Misko, who is struggling with long Covid, about what it means to be disabled in the United States and discusses whether long Covid could change the way we think about disability.

  6. Geez! Long covid now?? ? I’m still trying to survive bumbling Biden’s long dark winter!!

  7. I enjoyed this quite a lot. I do want to add the assumption of looking fit, thin, or being white also inspired doctors to assume things were just in my head. While the brain and body are connected, the widespread mistreatment of humans in the medical industry is much larger than appearance biases
