Post-COVID Clinic Participates in Long-Hauler Study

Tuesday, July 13, 2021

UI Health's post-covid research and care was recently featured in a July 13th Chicago Tribune article. The story follows Pilsen resident, Blair Rohrbach's journey managing post-COVID symptoms.

Rohrbach participates in the RECOVER (Researching COVID to Enhance Recovery) initiative which follows patients who had COVID, but still report chronic symptoms that they did not have prior to their COVID diagnosis.

UI Health is leading an Illinois-based team for this initiative. UI Health patients seen in the new Post-COVID Clinic have the opportunity to participate in RECOVER, however participation is not required to receive care at the clinic.

Typically, patients seen in the UI Health Post-COVID Clinic:

  • Have been referred by a primary care physician
  • Have COVID-related symptoms 30 or more days after having COVID
  • Had a mild case of COVID but continue to have symptoms
  • Are experiencing new, chronic conditions like depression, fatigue, weakness, difficulty concentrating, shortness of breath, headaches, kidney problems, and more.

To determine if the Post-COVID Clinic is a good fit for you, schedule an appointment with one of our primary care doctors today. Following a primary care visit, you may be referred to the clinic and matched with a patient navigator who can assist you in managing your care.
