Dr. Deer Leads Research Arm of Post-COVID Recovery Clinic at UTMB
Rachel Deer, PhD is leading the research arm of a new Post-COVID Recovery Clinic at UTMB. Dr. Deer is Principal Investigator of a new study, “Post-COVID Recovery Clinic: Study on long-term health and well-being.” Recovery from COVID-19 is posing a new set of challenges for patients and physicians alike. The Post-COVID Rehabilitation Clinic has a multidisciplinary team from a broad range of specialties to address the issues of COVID-19 aftercare. Clinic patients are given the opportunity to participate in an observational COVID-19 study. Participation is voluntary, and patients don’t have to register to get care at the clinic. The study collects data to help us understand the effects of COVID-19 on long-term health and well-being.
Patients discharged from UTMB after COVID are referred to the clinic, doctors may refer their patients, and patients may refer themselves. Make an appointment by calling (832) 632-6666 or visit https://www.utmbhealth.com/post-covid-19-clinic for more information.
