Early in May 2023, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, Director-General of the World Health Organization, announced an end to the COVID-19 Global Health Emergency. But Dr. Ghebreyesus was quick to add that thousands of people were still fighting for their lives in ICUs and many millions more were living with post-COVID health conditions.

On today's program we explore life post-COVID with Dr. James Jackson, author of "Clearing the fog: From surviving to thriving with Long COVID — A practical guide" (Little Brown Spark, 2023).

Dr. Jackson has been a pioneer in treating ICU survivors and that work prepared him to help patients as they emerged from the initial infection with SARS-CoV-2 and entered the uncharted -- and sometimes, baffling -- territory of Long COVID.
