Penn Medicine Launches Region’s First Post-COVID-19 Neurological Care Clinic

According to a recent study, as many as one in three COVID-19 survivors experience a mental health or neurological disorder within six months of a coronavirus infection, adding to a growing body of evidence that show COVID-19 can have serious and potentially long-lasting effects on the brain.

The Penn Neuro COVID Clinic aims to assess and treat long-haul COVID patients suffering from neurological symptoms. Recently launched by the Department of Neurology at the University of Pennsylvania’s Perelman School of Medicine, the clinic focuses on patients who previously tested positive for COVID-19 and experience symptoms related to cognition, headache, vertigo, and brain fog. This is the first such clinic in the region.
