COVID-19 for the Long Haul Presentations

To further educate the health care community, Bon Secours Mercy Health and The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center partnered together to host a successful continuing medical education event, COVID-19 for the Long Haul on April 10th.

Attendees learned how to improve care for COVID-19 with topics such as risk factors and symptoms, the role of exercise, therapy, pain management and nutrition as well as the community health impact and community resources available to assist with recovery.   A moment of silence was observed for all of those who have lost their lives to COVID-19.
