Title: SARS-CoV-2 Infection and Subsequent Risks of Chronic Conditions

Abstract: 

Estimating the magnitude of the total population health burden of the COVID-19 pandemic requires evidence regarding the frequency and magnitude of Long COVID and COVID sequelae. Initial studies estimating these risks and magnitudes in select populations have been published; theorized mechanisms explored; and larger, longer-term studies initiated. Of the evidence published to date, findings have shown risks of persistent respiratory and neurological symptoms for over a year post-infection as well as increased incidence of both cardiometabolic and neuropsychological conditions. A criticism of the available evidence is that the populations studied have been largely non-Hispanic white and relatively older. Our talk will describe a set of preliminary analyses we have undertaken in a large, racially and ethnically diverse and younger population to examine changes in incidence of chronic conditions after a SARS-CoV-2 Infection.
